Gallery Exhibit: Accordion Kings & Queens

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. The Accordion Kings & Queens gallery exhibit commemorates the annual Texas Folklife event with photographs depicting the lively and diverse musicians that gather around a celebration of true Texas folk music.
