Today in Seattle~ Accordi-O-Rama, Town Hall 2-5 PM

Global Rhythms’ squeezebox spectacular returns with a rising star atop the bill: hip young bandoneón master/composer Juan Pablo Jofre. Having attracted the attention of the international press and captivated audiences at the Heineken Jazz Festival in Puerto Rico, Jofre and his exquisite abilities as a player of tango’s quintessential instrument are becoming increasingly well-known—and admired. He’s joined on the Accordi-O-Rama bill by several local squeezebox luminaries: Saturday Family Concerts favorites Toy-Box Trio , playing new classical music with carnival flair; “The Kings of Mongrel Folk” (harmonica virtuoso Mark Graham and local guitar legend Orville Johnson); Lee Xiong, who plays the qeej, a Hmong variation of the Laotian khene (itself a variation of the Chinese sheng); the strolling styling of Puget Sound accordion luminary Bonnie Birch; and Seattle multi-instrumentalist composer/singer Amy Denio, another beloved Family Concerts veteran. Presented by Town Hall. Series media sponsorship provided by KBCS 91.3 FM and KEXP.
