Texas Folklife will bring its annual celebration of the state’s accordion roots music to Houston’s Miller Outdoor Theatre on Saturday, June 2, from 7:00-11:00 p.m. In keeping with its mission to preserve and present Texas’s diverse musical heritage, the concert will feature Texas accordion music legends in polka, Cajun, zydeco, and conjunto. This year’s accordion stars will include the 2017 National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellow Eva Ybarra and her band Conjunto Siempre, Keyun Dickson & The Zydeco Masters, JesseLége& Bayou Brew, Czech & Then Some, and the recently crowned 2018 Big Squeeze Accordion Contest Champs.
Writers and radio hosts Joe Nick Patoski and Tony Diaz return again as the emcees. The concert is free and open to the public.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area in the pavilion. Free tickets are available (while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the event (4 tickets per person) from 10:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. If any tickets remain at 1:00 p.m., the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, there will be open seating on the hill behind the pavilion.
The best way to receive free, assigned covered seating for Accordion Kings & Queens 2018 is to be or become a Texas Folklife member by noon on Saturday, June 2. Contact Texas Folklife to request (up to 4 tickets) seats in the covered seating area.
Although we provide the utmost luxury at The Villages of Lake Jackson Apartments in Lake Jackson, Texas, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
