Somerville Squeezebox Slam

Location: Seven Hills Park, Davis Square, Somerville
Rain Location: Clarendon Hill Presbyterian Church
155 Powderhouse Blvd., Somerville, MA 02144

This is a celebration, of accordions, button boxes and other free standing reed instruments. As with the first festival, accordionists of all skill levels and musical genres are invited to stroll around the neighborhoods of Somerville, sharing their melodious sounds, and like pied pipers from an alternative fairy tale, beckon all to come and follow them as they head to Davis Square for a concert of some of New England’s finest squeezebox players. So dust off your grandfather’s squeezebox that’s been sitting in the attic and join us for an afternoon of pumping the bellows! Accordion themed art/crafts and Redbones BBQ food will be for sale. Curated by Michael McLaughlin.

“Expansive harmony, brilliant music, discipline, openness, and freedom…an exceptional big band. - CultureJazz.Fr (France)

“Exuberance, imagination and sheer brio” - Jazz Review (UK)

The band will perform originals by founder and music director Mark Harvey (“give this groundbreaking music a listen” Jazz Now), including the world premiere of a piece by Harvey in honor of Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone. Also on tap: Harvey’s 2014 composition Spaceways, celebrating the Sun Ra Centennial. Rounding out the show: rarely-heard gems by Gerry Mulligan (A Ballad) and Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn (the infectious Blue Pepper from the exotic Far East Suite), plus Roll 'Em, the exuberant Swing-era masterpiece by Mary Lou Williams.
