Accordions Around the World

Wed Jul 24, 2019
5:30pm to 7:30pm

Accordions Around the World is a weekly summer series featuring accordionists as well as bandoneon, bayan, concertina, and harmonium-players of different musical genres.

Audiences have an opportunity to hear music from all over the world and to experience the wide range of this often overlooked and little-known instrument in an intimate performance setting. Choose to wander the park to explore different musical stylings, or set up a picnic –  the artists rotate around the audience.

Performances take place on Wednesdays from July 24 – August 14, from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.

The finale, on Friday, August 16, is the Accordion Festival, a five-hour celebration of bands with at least one accordionist. 5pm-10pm.
