Accordion Festivals - Frank Marocco Accordion Event

It's been a number of months since I've posted and life has not stood still. I'm officially the President of the Accordionists and Teachers Guild, International and I'm very proud of the Board members and fellow Officers as we move this wonderful and historic organization into the computer age. The ATG was founded over 60 years ago, it is an honor to take the helm.

Here is a picture from my cell phone taken at the airport in Phoenix as I waited for my luggage. I was bored and really wanted to be on my way to my first outing as ATG President to the Frank Marocco Accordion Event.

And this is one of those self-portaits we all attempt with our cell phones. It came into existance because I like to send a picture home to my family when I travel. This was taken right before I went to play some folk songs for Joan Grauman to teach dance mixers to the wonderful accordionists attending this event.
