Introduction workshop diatonic accordion – Wouter Kuyper
Friday 14.30 – 16.30 and Saturday 11.00 – 13.00
Location – Open Stage in the Ogtent
One of the most common instruments in Balfolk is the diatonic accordion. Besides listening to and dancing on, this instrument is very fit to play on as well. The basics of the button accordion are quite simple, compared to the years of practice it takes to be able to play the violin or bagpipes producing a nice sound. With the diatonic accordion you only have to push the right button and squeeze or pull the bellows of the accordion. Off course it is more complicated than that to make truly beautiful music, but you can learn the basics in just a few hours. Wouter will make you play some music on this instrument. He will explain the basics and give you plenty of opportunity to practice and ask questions. You don’t need an accordion, we will provide instruments.
This workshop is for everyone who never (or just a few times) played a diatonic accordion. You don’t need any knowledge in advance.
