Fill It With Accordionists

Saturday 17 October, 10.00 until 18.00, Level G Festival Attractions

Fill It With Accordionists is a confederacy of accordion players that comes together to play for festivals and events. Acting as aural waymarkers, the accordionists help people find their way between different parts of the event, keeping them company as they move through left-over, in-between and confusing spaces. It is a mixed-ability group of mostly amateur musicians and many of its players are members of the London Accordion Orchestra. As part of the Shuffle film festival in London’s Mile End, the group recently Filled Tower Hamlets Cemetery With Accordionists.
