Award-winning accordionists will be invited to perform at the ‘Folk Musician Masters Through The Years’ concerts, which will happen in various places during autumn and winter.
THE GOLD ACCORDION
The Gold Accordion is a Finnish national competition in accordion playing for entertainment. Sata-Häme Soi organises the competition in cooperation with the Finnish Accordion Association.
THE SILVER ACCORDION
The Silver Accordion is arranged alongside the adult competition. It’s intended for players of eleven years of age and younger—and to be an event in which fierce competition is avoided.
FOLK MUSIC COMPETITION
The Finnish Folk Music accordion competitions respect folk music traditions, having entrants play—for example—to the time of a waltz, polka, masurka, or jenkka. The competitions have several categories.
