Leyland Accordion Club – Lancashire, England
We meet thirty six times per year at The Priory Club, Broadfield Drive, Leyland, Lancashire, England, PR25 1QN, we hold a concert on the third Wednesday of every month, a professional guest artist features on alternate months. Our local players are the special guest artists on the months in between. Each month we have a practice night which is an excuse for us to get together drinking coffee, talking about all things accordion, playing, making new friends and generally having a good time.
The doors open at 7.30 PM. From 8pm onwards we listen to a variety of amateur and professional players on our stage. If you are a player, then bring your accordion along and give us a tune.
All levels of player welcome as well as listeners who just enjoy meeting a nice crowd and hearing some good music. Please note that on the evenings where we have a guest artist that does not mean that you leave your accordion at home. Even on guest artist nights, a part of the evening is dedicated to enthusiastic amateurs giving us their best. No reasonable offer to play will be turned down.
This may surprise you but about 50% of our members have never touched an accordion and have no idea how to play one, they simply come along for a good night of music and singalong tunes. Every meeting is a family affair, we have members from 8 to 80, everyone is made welcome. A good description of the club might be “a social club based around accordion music, concerts and events”.
Accordion Radio has been broadcasting 100 Percent Accordion Music, 24 Hours a day since 27th March 2001.
The station is run by David Batty of Leyland Accordion Club.
