Accordion Cavalcade, American Accordionists' Association

Recommended Posts

I was on my way out the door of a junk shop in New Bedford, Mass. and this ribbon with a cobweb on it and rusty pin was fastened to a totally unrelated pierced-edged plate amidst a pile of junk. So I unfastened it and the proprietor let me have it. Pretty cool, eh? Can't be many of these around. Does anyone know anything about the Accordion Cavalcade???

An internet search brought me to a site that says this:

"...the Singer Bowl - New York Worlds Fair on August 7, 1964. The Accordion Cavalcade, which was sponsored by the AAA, featured a Who’s Who of the accordion world. The guest artists included Carmen Carozza, Joan Cochran, Andy Arcari, Joseph Biviano, Art Van Damme, Pietro Deiro, Jr, Anthony Galla-Rini, Charles Magnante, Tony Mecca, “Skeets” Langley and Miss Accordion Queen, Beverly Roberts."

74 pages; I have selected the 18 pages that mention the Fair and the Accordion Cavalcade to be held at the Pavilion.

This includes several pages of names of the hundreds of scheduled participants.
