Scandinavian Squeeze-In: 27-29 April 2018

For the 19th year in a row, squeezebox players from near and far
will gather with our instruments in Skåne (southern Sweden) for another
weekend of making music, sharing knowledge and skills, and general enjoyment.

Our annual Scandinavian Squeeze-In is of course happening again in 2018.  It will be our   19th annual and it will be held over the weekend of 27-29 April 2018.

Location:  Torna Hällestad, Skåne in southern Sweden, quite near Malmö.


Our concept is an informal and relaxed weekend where both expert and less-experienced squeezers can exchange tunes, techniques, and other knowledge, or just enjoy playing together.


There are no designated instructors or “performers”. Instead, when everyone gathers on Friday evening we will compose a workshop schedule depending on what the participants want to learn and who has expertise to share.

Example themes could include techniques for song accompaniment, comparing the advantages of various melodeon and anglo layouts, regional Swedish folk tunes, hints for beginners, chords and harmonies, Irish on the English, instrument repair, or anything else that interests us.

Note from webmaster: after being on my bucket list for years, I finally made it to the Scandinavian Squeeze-In last year: very nice place, very nice people: a mix of English people migrated to Sweden, Swedish people mad of English and their own music (amongst other things), a melodeon player who flew in from Liverpool and an American from Stockholm. Excellent music. Excellent food. What can I say? See you there this year!

Internet Video Jukebox 12 with Paul Walker

 

Alexander Prince (concertina) – Jackanapes Polka) a masterful performance on 78 rpm.(1915).

Gratefully received from from CW reader Steve Taggart:

(See last CW Tune Supplement).”Here called “Modern Times” but, as l understand it, that was the title of the 1936 Chaplin film, for the sound-track of which Charlie, an excellent musician and apparently taking inspiration from Puccini’s opera “Tosca”, had originally composed his song “Smile”. Also two performances of this song, both played by English-concertina-playing clowns, one for a circus audience, the other to a somewhat less-than-interested flock of ducks!” Continue reading

Virtual Folk Club 5 with Paul Walker

Tonight’s guest is Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne, concertina/melodeon player with Granny’s Attic, one of the young roots outfits currently freshening up the English Folk circuit.

PW: Well 2017 will see Granny’s Attic livening up Chester, Saddleworth, Bromyard, Banbury & Hartlepool Folk Festivals among others. So I’m here with a biriyani from No Bones Jones & couple of virtual pints of Doombar from the Camra tent.

So we’ll kick off with a drinking song from The Dubliners (and one of your set list Cohen) “Whisky in the Jar”:
