Editor’s Note

Rob HowardWelcome to the Christmas edition of the Weekly News, the last news bulletin for 2014. The past year has seen a large number and wide variety of accordion events around the world, lots of new recordings and compositions, etc, and the accordion world has also seen the sad passing of some notable personalities, reported on Accordions Worldwide.

We hope you have enjoyed reading the news each week, and I would like to thank all who submitted news items to Accordions Worldwide. The service we provide for all accordionists depends very much on your contributions. Please keep sending your news about forthcoming events. Our service is free, and we aim to be as helpful as possible.
