Texas Folklife presents Big Squeeze Talent Showcase
Texas Folklife and MECA will hold its third Big Squeeze Talent Showcase, the second of two back-to-back showcases in the big city.
The emphasis for this showcase is Conjunto, but the organization is looking for accordion players ages 21 and under to showcase their performance abilities in any of the three main accordion genre categories: Polka, Cajun/Zydeco and Conjunto. The Polka genre will include German, Czech, and Polish traditions. Cajun / Zydeco will include Creole, Cajun and Zydeco musical traditions. Conjunto will include Norteño and Tejano.
All young accordionists in any of the above styles are encouraged to show up an hour before start time to register for our contest. Special musical guests will perform after the contest.
