Folk and Boat Festival – Accordion Players Wanted!

June 2015 saw the first ‘Garden Party’ in Middlewich specifically designed to raise funds for the Winstons Wish Charity (details below). Using the title of Accordion Magic, the event was run in John & Jackie Romero’s back garden which overlooks onto the Trent & Mersey canal – Just off Junction 18 of the M6.

The party was part of the fringe around the Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (FAB) and some 25,000 attended the event. Harry Hussey, Stephan Andrusyschyn, Jovan Rnjak, John Romero & North Staffs Accordion Orchestra all helped out and £470.71 was raised! In fact, John & Jackie have – to date – helped raised a total of over £12,219 for the charity.

This year’s event takes place on the 18th and 19th June and already the line-up is looking fantastic! Weaver Valley Accordion Orchestra, North Staffs Accordion Orchestra, Harry Hussey, Stephan Andrusyschyn, Jovan Rnjak and Colin Walker will all be in attendance!
