Thank you to all of our artists, supporters, sponsors, fans, Miller Outdoor Theater and Texas Folklife crew who made the 29th annual Accordion Kings & Queens an incredible success! Thousands of squeezebox fans braved the June heat and were rewarded handsomly with a beautiful evening of accordion music and dancing. Texas Folklife's annual multicultural accordion celebration has never been more important and meaningful, stay tuned for details about the special 30th edition of Accordion Kings & Queens in 2019.
