Skei-Treffen Accordion Festival, Skei Jolster – Norway

Zoltan Orosz
The 36th Skei-Treffen Accordion Festival will start on Friday November 5th and ends on Sunday November 7th, to which all "old and new" guests are warmly welcome! The venue is the Best Western Skei Hotel, Postboks 23, N-6841 Skei Jolster, Norway.

The first Skei-Treffen event started in 1974 in collaboration with the Ford Accordion Club. From 1983 the meeting continued – with Henry Haagenrud as Musical Director and anchor man, guiding the meeting for 10 years in a row! From 1992 Frode Haltli took over the lead as Musical Coordinator, from 1992 to today, with the exception of 2008 when he was busy with a several missions in Cairo.

This year musicians from Hungary, Italy and Norway are the highlights of this long lasting festival, including accordionists Frode Haltli, Havard Svendsrud, Kjell Harald Langhaug, Mario D'Amario, and Zoltan Orosz (picture above). Hungary’s Zoltan Orosz appears with his bassist Csaba Pengo and guitarist Zoltan Balogh, perfomorming some pieces of his new CD, being released in December of this year. Bjorn Breilid (guitar / sound and voice) and Bjorn Frederiksberg (bass) also will be performing. All artistes have made their mark far beyond our borders and are highly considered musicians - ensuring all guests will have a fabulous and memorable weekend with music and dancing.
