accordionWe promote non-competitive music for entertainment and community. We are popular not esoteric. We are interested in music that speaks to the heart of the people and as such we promote cultural diversity. We embrace highly skilled players alongside homegrown folk players, artistic collaboration with other art forms, and avant-garde uses of the instrument.
