Traditional Music of Texas

By: Laurie Gallardo

The accordions are on fire, so you know this dance party’s lit. Today’s live stream pick come to you courtesy of the Kennedy Center’s Couch Concert series: The Traditional Music of Texas. Presented in partnership with Texas Folklife, this live stream show features accordion-fronted performances of conjunto done by Brownsville-based artist Juan Longoria, Jr.; polka by New Braunfels artist Isaak Klaus; and Zydeco with Houston artist Keyun Dickson. And just a heads-up: Each of these accordion masters happen to be former champions of Texas Folklife’s Big Squeeze accordion contest, and have performed at the annual Accordion Kings & Queens Concert in Houston.

Don’t miss the live stream at 3 p.m. (Central) today, Monday June 15th, on the Kennedy Center’s Facebook page. And don’t worry if you miss the live stream this afternoon; you can see it later on the Kennedy Center Facebook page and on their YouTube channel.
