And as migrants made the trip overseas to America, many brought their accordions along with them. As a result, the instrument played a prominent role in the musical life of the Lower East Side. In those days, the sounds of the accordion evoked the old country. But today, musicians from around the globe are breathing new life and traditions into this old-time instrument. Join us as we celebrate the accordion's longstanding legacy! In our historic sanctuary, accordionists James Keane, Ismail Butera and Angel "Arison" Gutierrez, along with host Bob Godfried, will present the instrument's global reach. Enjoy accordion tunes from Klezmer, Irish, Dominican, Balkan & Mediterranean cultures! http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=341505 Museum at Eldridge Street Museum at Eldridge Street
