Guildford Accordion Club September Newsletter

The latest newsletter from our good friends at the Guildford Accordion ClubOur September 2016 Guest is

Paul Hutchinson.

(The Secret Accordionist)

Paul is a talented accordionist, composer and teacher. He was born in Bournemouth and studied piano and church organ. At 17 his father persuaded him to take up the accordion and form a ceilidh band.

We hope you enjoy his performance tonight.


We look forward to our guests

David & Angie Lukins.

David plays a variety of styles and his repertoire can range from Jazz , Scottish, European and light classics to easy listening, all played in his own unique and inimitable style.

His wife Angie joins him to play duets.

Should be a very good evening.

Adrienne Griffiths

20th January 1948 – 5th September 2016

We are all saddened by the news that Adrienne

has passed away

She will be sadly missed by all her family and many friends in the accordion world.

She travelled to attend our club when she could.

She had many achievements. One was starting the South Hampshire Accordion Club.

Many years ago she had a Strict Tempo Dance Group. Also French Mussette and Folk groups.

Adrienne also taught the accordion and ran workshops at St Audries Bay. She also played with the Crawley Accordion Orchestra.

She was a great supporter of Accordion festivals and events, often travelling great distances to help and support people wherever she could.

Adrienne was a leading figure in the accordion world respected and admired by everyone who knew her, both for her musical knowledge and her talent playing the accordion.

On behalf of the Guildford Accordion Club we offer our sincere condolences to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.
