Big Squeeze Accordion Contest at Bullock Museum


Back for its fifth year on the Bullock Museum’s Lone Star Plaza, the Big Squeeze Accordion Contest will host an afternoon of squeezebox greats, young and old. 

On Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 2 – 6 p.m., the public is invited to watch nine finalists compete for three grand prizes in polka, zydeco, and conjunto accordion traditions. 

Following the competition, enjoy an outdoor concert featuring some of the best accordionists from around the state. Dance to the sounds of Grammy-winner Sunny Sauceda, Curtis Poullard & the Creole Zydeco Band, and Austin’s own Fabulous Polkasonics. As always, come early, stay late, and bring your folding chairs and dancing shoes. 

This event is free and open to the public.

For more information, visit the Bullock Texas State History Museum website or the Texas Folklife website.  You can also check out the Facebook event page.
