Texas Folklife's Music & Cultural Heritage Programming

Accordion Kings & Queens is an annual concert that draws thousands to Houston's Miller Outdoor Theatre. The event celebrates the cultural diversity of Texas by bringing communities together for an evening of dancing and roots music played on the accordion. It also introduces rising stars, such as the champions of our annual Big Squeeze Youth Accordion Program, encouraging the development of young musicians as the next generation of tradition-bearers through mentorships and opportunities to play for large crowds, including as featured artists on the Texas Commission on the Arts Touring RosterTexas Folklife also collaborates with others to highlight the diverse music of our state through programs like the Festival of Texas Fiddling and Polkapocalypse, and serves as a fiscal sponsor for several projects of grassroots organizations and artists.

 

About the Series:

The first stage of our outreach efforts in North Texas will be our “Talk-O Tuesday” North Texas Community Event Series. We invite artists, musicians, community members, businesses, educators, frontline workers, and other supporters interested in getting involved with our work to meet our team, learn more about our mission, talk about what support the folk & traditional arts communities of North Texas are in need of, and where Texas Folklife can fit in!
