‘Accordions Around the World’


Squeeze boxes of many modes—cajun, blues, classical, Italian, folk, Lawrence Welk-ian, etc.—will be deployed about Bryant Square in honor of today’s 75th anniversary of the American Accordionists’ Association. At 7 p.m., the contingent will assemble for a mass rendition of “New York, New York” on the Fountain Terrace, followed by a jam and dance party. Bring your own bandoneon, button box, or harmonium at 9 for a public free-for-all.

Thursdays, 5 p.m. Starts: Aug. 15. Continues through Aug. 29, 2013
