The Big Squeeze Talent Showcase & Audition at Cafe 4212 is one of many Big Squeeze events across Texas in 2018 and one of two Big Squeeze events in Houston. Texas Folklife's Big Squeeze Accordion Program searches for the top youth accordionist talent in Texas. All genres of accordion music are welcome including Conjunto, Zydeco, Cajun, Polka and more.
We are excited to find and showcase accordion talent! The emphasis for this showcase is ZYDECO but, we are looking for any and all accordion players that fall into our age categories. Cajun / Zydeco will include Creole, Cajun and Zydeco musical traditions. The Polka genre will include German, Czech, and Polish traditions. Conjunto will include Norteño and Tejano. Please contact Texas Folklife if you are unsure under which category your music falls. [Organizer's description]
