Giving you the Big Squeeze in 2015

Today a new adventure in my life begins. I am super happy and excited to be back working for Texas Folklife. With the expert guidance and leadership of Executive Director Cristina Balli, I will be coordinating the Big Squeeze Accordion Throwdown. This statewide contest showcases the talented young accordion players, age 21 and younger, in the beautiful Texas musical traditions of Conjunto, Cajun/Zydeco, and German/Czech/Polish polka. This program is a great way to keep our Texas musical traditions alive and pass them on to the younger generations.
