AUSTIN – Folklife’s 22nd annual Accordion Kings and Queens Festival will be another chance to dance the night away to accordion greats playing conjunto, zydeco, and polka in Houston. This year’s Festival will feature Brave Combo, Corey Ledet and Mickey y sus Carnalez, as well as the finale to The Big Squeeze contest. Popular Texas journalist Joe Nick Patoski will again emcee the star-studded affair on Saturday, June 4, at 6 p.m. and it is free and open to the public.
Festival goers wanting seats in the pavilion area can pick up their free tickets the day of the festival at the Miller Box Office or become members of Texas Folklife and receive up to four reserved tickets. Fans should plan to “scoot their boots” because the night promises to be a squeezebox extravaganza.
