Workshop Diatonic Accordion

 For the first time, TradInEtno will host a specific instrument workshop: in 2017 we welcome the boxes in Pazin! The workshop diatonic accordion is led by Vincenzo Cagliotti from Milano. In a small group, you will learn new and traditional tunes for bal folk from Italy, but also from over Europe. And who knows, maybe even some Istrian scale will find the way to your buttons!

Vincenzo will mostly teach by ear, so bring some device to record if you can. You will need a diatonic accordion in G/C with 2 or 3 rows and with 8 – 18 bass buttons. All levels are welcome, except beginners. A basic knowledge of English is recommended as the lessons will be in English.

The workshop starts with a meeting of participants on saturday evening July 15th. From sunday July 16th untill thursday July 20th, the lessons will be from 9:00-13:00. Those who don’t want to rest or discover Istra, can book a private afternoon course with Vincenzo, to be payed on top of the workshop. On thursday evening july 20th the workshop will play for dancing on the  Tavolac of the TradInEtno festival. Afterwards all participants are welcome to enjoy the festival untill the end on sunday morning july 23th.
