Texas Folklife's 19th annual Accordion Kings concert, held June 7 at Miller Outdoor Theatre in Houston, was a smashing success, with 6,000 accordion fans in attendance to cheer on our Big Squeeze contest finalists and the featured bands: La Tropa F, Step Rideau & the Zydeco Outlaws and the Knights of Dixie Orchestra. They were particularly thrilled that a hometown boy, Houston's John Ramirez, 16, won the Big Squeeze Grand Prize of $500 and a day of recording time at Houston's historic SugarHill Studios.
