It’s time to rejoice for fans of the accordion. With Fiesta and the Tejano Conjunto Festival just around the corner, Texas Folklife presents — for the ninth year — The Big Squeeze, a contest/concert for young squeezeboxers. The event is open to the public and is designed to encourage inter-generational dialogue and to function as a vehicle for cultural preservation. Those in attendance can expect to be treated to some of the best young accordion players in town, competing in three categories: polka, zydeco and conjunto. The local winners will go on to compete in the statewide finals.
