Sevenoaks Three Arts Festival 2017

Sevenoaks Three Arts Festival always includes an Accordion and Concertina Section as does Maidstone Music festival which, many accordionists like to participate in.  It is wonderful that these festivals which are outside of the accordion scene in the UK want to continue having an accordion section.  So if teachers have any students they wish to enter into the competition please go to the festival website http://www.sevenoaksthreeartsfestival.co.uk and send for a syllabus which will inform you as to the many categories which are open to you.  It is good for the accordion to be present at more general music festivals of all descriptions so please try to support anyone wishing to promote the accordion.

 Accordion at Sevenoaks Three Arts Festival

The accordion has become a regular feature at Sevenoaks Three Arts Festival.  It’s always good to see the accordion included in more general music and arts festivals rather than solely accordion-only competitions.  It means the outside world are interested in the instrument and want it to be part of other festivals.  The Accordion day at this Festival is always a bit like a party, everyone knowing everyone else and staying to listen to players in classes they themselves are not playing in – which doesn’t always seem to happen in other sections.  The spirit shown by accordionist participants makes the accordion a valued part of this festival.
