Stockport Accordion Club's Broken Cross Concert, Cheshire – UK

StokportAC
Rob & JohnJohn JonesOn Sunday afternoon September 26th the members of Stockport Accordion Club (picture top) performed their annual charity concert in aid of the East Cheshire Hospice at the Broken Cross Club in Macclesfield, Cheshire. The first concert was in 2000. As last year’s concert was cancelled due to the pandemic, the 2021 concert was the 20th event, for which a special souvenir programme was produced.

The concert was well attended and went very well indeed, despite us losing star soloists Pearl Fawcett-Adriano and Walter Perrie beforehand through health concerns. There was a large audience, and the hastily re-arranged programme saw the Stockport Accordion Band, Accordion Spice, John Jones, Helen Rich, and John Jones & Rob Howard (picture above left) putting together an entertaining show that went down well with all present.

The Band’s pieces were Colonel Bogey, Amapola, Vienna City of my Dreams, Lichtensteiner Polka (MD Adrienne Sharpe), Aces High, If you love me, Moonlight Serenade, Bonanza (MD Brennan Wilson), and Black Forest Polka, Alexander's Ragtime Band, Metsakkukia, These Foolish Things, My Way (MD Marj Howard). John Jones (picture above right) played a set of Abba songs, and Accordion Spice's pieces were The Thunderer (Sousa), Little Swiss Polka, As Time Goes By, Harmonika Mit Gruss, and Phantom of the Opera. Accordion Spice featured Helen Rich, Chris Green, and Adrienne Sharpe (picture below).

Helen Rich performed solo pieces Fragrant Flowers (Pietro Frosini), Danza Orientale, Indifference (Tony Murena/Joseph Colombo), Besame Mucho, Magic Fingers (Charles Camilleri), Mariouska, Waltz for Kylin, and Golden Slippers (Frosini). Helen was on top form, and gave highly impressive performances. By way of contrast, John & Rob Howard followed by performing a set of music from the 1960s with Summer Holiday, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Delilah, It's Now Or Never, and You'll Never Walk Alone.

All proceeds go to the East Cheshire Hospice, and £950 was raised. Karen Johnston, CEO of the East Cheshire Hospice, gave a vote of thanks to John Jones MBE and all the other performers. All in all, it was an excellent afternoon of varied accordion music, and a win-win for everybody concerned.

The concert was recorded, and a CD is expected to be issued in aid of the East Cheshire Hospice.
