Somerville, MA Squeezebox Fest, Sat Sep 17, 2011

fest logoIf there is music I love being played somewhere in Boston, the odds are that Michael McLaughlin, of Shirim, Naftule's Dream, KlezWoods, and too many other ensembles, is behind it. So, when he suggests that we might all want to attend this upcoming event, I listen attentively and make plans to be there:

SqueezeBox Slam: Including the Big Stroll & Concert
Saturday, September 17 ยท 12:00pm - 3:00pm

Be part of the Boston area's first accordion & concertina festival on Sept. 17th! Squeezebox players of all shapes, sizes and musical interests are invited to come to Somerville and play/stroll/set up camp in the city's public spaces and parks from 12-3. No jury, no curation, kind of a flash mob for musicians. We are calling it "The Big Stroll". Then from 3-6 we will be hosting a free concert in Union Square as part of ArtsUnion. Produced by ARTSomerville, the Nave Gallery, and Michael McLaughlin. Made possible because of the awesome support of the Somerville Arts Council.

The Concert at Union Square goes from 3-6.

  • Plamen Karadenov from 3-3:30;
  • Joao Cerilo from 3:30-4:00;
  • Michael McLaughlin 4:00-4:30;
  • Mariache Estampa de America 4:30-5:00;
  • Peter Bufano 5:00-5:30
  • Roberto Cassan 5:30-6:00.
