After the Jazz Accordion Festival, from 11th to 14th May 2017 another card is added to the exciting and varied puzzle of the events promoted by PIF Castelfidardo to enhance the accordion. The first WOW Folk Festival (where wow is the acronym of World On World) collects the fruits of the popular tradition of which the diatonic accordion is the queen. A rich calendar of free admission events including storytellers, folklore performances, free folk dance lessons, concerts, pizzica and taranta from Salento. Preview on April 28th with the double concert of Orquestrina Trama.
“Folk is a musical genre that is increasingly appreciated by young people for its ability to be a vehicle of union through jubilant dances that evoke an ancestral dimension,” commented the councilor of culture Ruben Cittadini, who chose the Castelfidardo square as its main location. “We like the idea of grouping the accordion souls into a multifaceted box that enhances the instrument and the artists and the idea of direct involvement to the audience. Not the classic relationship between audience and artist, but a passage of vital energy Dancing to the sound of the organ and the drummer “.
WOW Folk Festival is organized in partnership with Gianni Donnini and Federico Cippitelli, leaders of the Traballo and with the contribution of the companies Baffetti, Beltuna Bugari, Castagnari, Zerosette, hotel restaurant I Cugini and Pizzeria restaurant La Grotta.
