    What a show! Thank you to all of our artists, supporters, fans and Miller Outdoor Theater and Texas Folklife crew who made the 26th annual Accordion Kings & Queens a wild success!  Our 2015 edition of Accordion Kings & Queens truly reflected the talent and diversity of Texas accordion music.

    Accordion Kings & Queens is an annual Texas Folklife showcase of the amazing musical diversity of Texas accordion styles, featuring legends of conjunto, polka, country western, zydeco, Cajun and more. The annual event celebrates the cultural diversity of Texas by bringing communities together for an evening of dancing and roots music played on the accordion, "the national instrument of Texas," drawing a capacity crowd of six thousand to Houston's Miller Outdoor Theatre every year.
