Remembering Adam Wilkinson 1945 to 2020 - Northern Ireland

Adam WilkinsonArticle with pictures: Adam Wilkinson 1945 to 2020

The entire Accordion Community throughout all of Ireland, the UK and further afield shall be deeply saddened to learn of the passing (peacefully) of Adam Wilkinson yesterday, Tuesday 1st September 2020 at Antrim Area Hospital and late of 29 Old Antrim Road, Ballymena, Co Antrim. Adam was 75 and is survived by his wife Jennifer and daughters Wendy, Janice and Charis.

Adam was a Bandsman through and through joining his beloved Killycoogan Accordion Band in the 1950's as a snare drummer before moving onto accordion. He became Musical Director and moulded them into a top class Marching Band as well as transforming them into a Concert and Competition band. As word of his prowess spread he was in great demand by other bands to train them and when he moved on from Killycoogan he enjoyed phenomenal success with, amongst others, St Johns of Drumcree, Vow, County of Antrim, Aughafatten, Lower Ballinderry and, laterly, Glenavy.

His bands were rarely out of the prizes in the top competitions run by the Northern Ireland Accordion Band League, the Northern Ireland Open Accordion Championships, The Irish Accordion Associations All Ireland Championships, the UK National Accordion Championships and the World Music Festival in Innsbruck Austria. In addition to the numerous UK titles he amassed with various Bands/Orchestras his finest achievements were obtaining 4th place in the Advanced Orchestra Section with the County Antrim Accordion Orchestra, which he founded, and winning First Prize with the St John's Of Drumcree Orchestra in the Intermediate Section at the prestigious World Music Festival in Austria. No other Musical Director from the UK has matched that marvellous achievement.

Adam was truly a giant in the accordion band scene and at his last appearance at the Northern Ireland International Open Accordion Championships in 2017 he received a richly deserved standing ovation when he was presented with a Special Merit Award in recognition of his great contribution to the accordion movement.

Adam and I have been friends for over 40 years and it was through him I joined Killycoogan. He also encouraged me to become Secretary of the Accordion Band League and to organise the NI Open Accordion Championships.

The door to 29 Old Antrim Road was always open, it was like a magnet with the house being packed many's and many's a time. He had a very cheerful and warm personality and always greeted you with a smile. Adam was very observant of human behaviour and had a great turn of phrase in describing people and their characteristics. He was also a Master Storyteller when it came to telling an entertaining yarn.

A Legend has gone from the accordion band scene in Northern Ireland and I shall miss him very much.

Due to the current restrictions the house and Funeral is private. The Funeral Cortege will leave Alan Francey’s Funeral Church on Friday 4th September at 13.45 proceeding out Toome Road allowing family and friends the opportunity to pay their respects whilst adhering to social distancing for a private family burial in Ballee New Cemetery at 14.00.

Condolences to the Wilkinson family circle at this sad and difficult time

Seventeen year old India, who has been competing at UK Championships since the age of seven, was left feeling rather disappointed when the 2020 UK event, organised by the National Accordion Organisation of the United Kingdom, was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Rather than remaining disappointed, India from Milton Bridge near Edinburgh, Scotland decided to record several videos, featuring the pieces she planned to perform in three different categories, and share them with Accordions Worldwide.

This week we are publishing three videos and next week we will publish the remaining three videos.

40 años después de que el sueño se hiciera realidad - 1980 Coupe Mondiale

1980 Coupe Mondiale letterhead
Coupe Mondiale booklet coverInforme histórico del sitio web de 1980, imágenes y resultados en: 1980 CoupeMondialeHistory

"¿Podríamos en Nueva Zelanda organizar la Coupe Mondiale? ¿No sería un gran evento tanto para Nueva Zelanda como para el acordeón?" Estas fueron preguntas planteadas a un grupo de miembros del comité de la Asociación de Acordeón de Nueva Zelanda (NZAA) a fines de la década de 1970 por el prominente abogado de Auckland, Gerald Ryan, quien era un entusiasta partidario del movimiento del acordeón, con varios de sus hijos aprendiendo el instrumento. Con el apoyo adicional de Harley Jones y su padre Allan, quienes tenían un contacto considerable con organizaciones de acordeón en el extranjero, se convirtió primero en un estudio de viabilidad y finalmente se convirtió en un proyecto definitivo.

La oferta de Nueva Zelanda para albergar la Coupe Mondiale en Auckland se presentó a la Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA) en marzo de 1979 en el Congreso de Invierno y se aceptó provisionalmente. Era obvio que los competidores, especialmente los de Europa, tendrían que viajar más lejos de lo que estaban acostumbrados para participar en una Coupe Mondiale celebrada en Nueva Zelanda. Incluso en las pocas ocasiones en que se celebró la Coupe Mondiale en Estados Unidos, planteó problemas económicos a los competidores europeos. El costo del viaje fue un gran obstáculo para la candidatura a organizar el evento en Nueva Zelanda.

La aceptación se confirmó cuando en el "Congreso de Verano" de 1979 en Cannes, Francia, Harley Jones y David Lilico presentaron una película promocional de Nueva Zelanda, y dieron garantía de un subsidio de tarifa aérea de $ 1000 por competidor, con una cantidad similar ofrecida a varios ejecutivos de la CIA. En realidad, esto se incrementó a $ 1500 en el momento de la Coupe Mondiale y se proporcionó un subsidio más pequeño de $ 600 para todos los delegados que asistieron.

El evento de 1980 fue la primera vez que la Coupe Mondiale se llevó a cabo en el Pacífico Sur y también fue la primera competencia internacional de música celebrada en Nueva Zelanda.

Ahora, reflexionando sobre este hito en Nueva Zelanda y en la historia de la CIA, se ha publicado una reseña del evento para conmemorar el 40 aniversario de la puesta en escena de la Coupe Mondiale en Nueva Zelanda. Muy pocas imágenes y documentos están disponibles en este momento, sin embargo, todos estos materiales se han correlacionado para hacer esta reseña de recuerdo.

1980 fue la primera Coupe Mondiale a la que asistió el famoso profesor de francés Jacques Mornet y hasta el día de hoy siempre reflexiona que 1980 fue una de las mejores Coupe Mondiales a las que disfrutó asistir.

Es interesante ver que la mayoría de los acordeonistas que compiten en ese momento han continuado manteniendo un papel activo en el mundo del acordeón. Yo mismo, estrechándole la mano al presidente de la CIA, el Dr. Karl Majer, como ganador del noveno lugar, nunca podría haber imaginado que tendría el honor de servir como presidente de la CIA. Mi compañero concursante de Nueva Zelanda, Marcel Riethmann, ahora se desempeña como presidente de los Centros de Educación Musical en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda, Dan Mastroianni ha disfrutado de una carrera de por vida como músico, compositor, acordeonista y pianista, los competidores australianos Nerida Farmer y Catherine Day Jackett mantienen Alain Musichini (Francia) ganó la Coupe Mondiale y se desempeña como uno de los artistas más buscados en Francia con Bal Musette, Peter Soave (EE. UU.) también ganó la Coupe. Mondiale y se estableció como uno de los concertistas más respetados tanto en acordeón como en bandoneón, Krystof Olczek (Polonia) es ahora un prolífico compositor y acordeonista y enseña una clase de acordeón, dirige conjuntos de cámara e imparte un curso facultativo titulado “Música del siglo XX práctica de interpretación ”en la Academia de Música de Gdansk, Alfred Melichar se desempeña como profesor de acordeón en la Universidad Bruckner de Lin En su Austria natal, Christianne Bonnay (Francia) es profesora de acordeón en la Academia de Música de Mónaco y el ganador Werner Glutsch enseña en el Conservatorio Hohner de Trossingen.
