The Urbana-Champaign Accordion Club is an informal group of individuals who meet regularly to play accordions together and discuss accordion music. Players of any skill or experience level encouraged to attend, and new members are always welcome - the only requirement is an interest in accordion music.
Members of the Accordion Club have performed at the Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival in 2011 and 2012. They have drawn repertoire from a wide variety of styles, including tango, cabaret, klezmer, zydeco, and many other folk traditions. Any member can bring repertoire to the group, and leadership is dispersed among the members.
The Accordion Club meets most Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 pm in the basement of the Independent Media Center, 202 South Broadway, Urbana.
