Winter Rhythms 2023: “Gals Who Squeeze” Starring Mary Spencer Knapp
December 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$35
Rebel Squeezebox: a dazzling world music journey through the histories of women who revolutionized the accordion. What is the accordion and who plays it?? Broadway accordionist and childhood music educator Mary Spencer Knapp takes us on a musical journey to meet some of the squeezebox’s most influential players from around the world. Together we will learn about Creole zydeco music from Louisiana’s legendary Queen Ida, experimental music from the legacy of Pauline Oliveros and merengue tipico from Republica Dominicana’s Fefita La Grande! Get ready to dance, shake… and squeeze!
