“Accordion Therapy: A Fundraiser for The New Orleans Accordion Festival”

NEW ORLEANS, LA-  The inaugural fund raiser for The New Orleans Accordion Festival will be held on November 12, 2017, at Siberia Lounge,  2227 St. Claude Avenue from 8 pm until Midnight.  Suggested door donations are $10-$15.

Entertainment throughout the evening will include accordion performances from New Orleans’ musicians  Accordianistan, Noah Adams, Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes, Ash Blume, The Klezmer All-Stars Duo, Bart Ramsey, Greg Schatz, Greg Speck, and Michael Ward-Bergeman with M.C. Dr. Sick.

The festival itself will have its premier next November, 2018, in New Orleans to celebrate the accordion as a serious instrument played within many genres of music in the city, state, nation and around the globe.  Funding will help provide the development of a not-for-profit organization that will develop year round programs with accordion performances providing education as well as entertainment in schools, festivals, with local agencies caring for New Orleans’ residents in many capacities and other environments.

The musicians are donating their time to help the festival become a reality in 2018.  Food and drink for sale is provided by Siberia Lounge throughout the evening.
