Accordion Showcase Concert, Glasgow, 25 October 2015
« on: July 23, 2015, 07:09:08 PM »
Roy Hendrie is promoting an Accordion Showcase Concert and trade exhibition in Glasgow on the evening of Sunday 25th October 2015, with a star-studded lineup of accordion players (see attached poster). There's no specific 3-row connection, though button boxes will be represented by 2-row whizz Paddy Callaghan; but the list of players promises a great night for accordion music lovers.
Notice of the concert is also posted by Accordion Showcase on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/602508579851564/.
Tickets may be ordered by emailing Roy Hendrie at roy@royhendriemusic.co.uk

This concert last night was a great success. A full-capacity audience was treated to a marvellous display of virtuosity by the performers. The music covered many genres of accordion music, Scottish, jazz, French musette, tango, classical and Irish traditional.
The associated trade area was very busy, with a number of different accordion manufacturers represented. Piano accordions dominated, of course, but The Squeezebox Shop, Beauly exhibited some interesting Alessandrini 2- and 3-row instruments.

A bigger and better event is planned for Sunday 13th March 2016.
