Accordion Workshop with Pete Shaw, from “Good Habits”
We’ll be looking at how to diversify your tune playing and accompanying rhythm and harmony to shake up how you approach new tunes. Open to all standards!
Pete Shaw started playing accordion at the age of 14 in his hometown of Shrewsbury, England. He first focused on Irish and Scottish folk before studying for his Bachelors of Music at The University of Manchester.
Here he developed a love for Klezmer and jazz enthused performance, seeing how the accordion could be stretched to its limits. In 2018 he was awarded the Yiddish New York Performance Scholarship, which allowed him to train with Klezmer royalty, such as Sir Frank London and other
members of The Klezmatics in New York.
