Texas Folklife, ZydecoEvents.com and Cafe 4212 will hold its fourth Big Squeeze Talent Showcase of 2017. This is the first of two back-to-back showcases in the big city.

The emphasis for this showcase is Zydeco, 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 Keyun Dickson and the Zydeco Masters will perform after the contest.
