This Week in Accordion: Camp Accordionland

No summer slowdown on the accordion calendar. What’s going on this week?

  • Camp Accordionland (Sat-Sun in Berkeley, CA)
    It’s a weekend full of workshops, jam sessions, ensemble playing, and general merriment with 50 other accordion lovers at beautiful Tilden Park in Berkeley. We went last year and had a blast.
  • Mamou Playboys School of Music (Tuesday in Lafayette, LA)
    Louisiana Folk Roots presents a one-of-a-kind learning experience: four weeks of accordion, fiddle and guitar lessons led by Steve Riley and his band, the Mamou Playboys. On the final week, every participant gets a chance to play with the full band!
  • Accordions By The Sea Festival (Fri-Sun in Victoria, BC, Canada)
    Head north of the border as the Victoria Accordion Club hosts its first-ever accordion festival, with performances by Mario Pedone, S-Bahn, Bertram Levy, and many more.

And if you’re a San Francisco Giants fan, check out Italian Heritage Night this Tuesday night at AT&T Park. SF’s own Bella Ciao will be performing the (American) national anthem. Oh, and you might see Barry Bonds hit his 756th home run, too.
