June 15th will see the coming of the 2nd Somerville Squeezebox Slam. A celebration, of accordions, button boxes and other free standing reed instruments that we’ve come to know and love. As happened in the first festival, accordionists of all sizes, shapes, 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!
Saturday June 15th 1-6, in Seven Hills Park at Davis Square. Presented by the Nave and the Somerville Arts Council; produced by Michael McLaughlin.
