Esperienza britannica:

Al mio primo vero concerto distante dall’Italia: solo io e la mia fisarmonica.
È stato tutto fantastico. Davanti alla sala del teatro c’era un mio grande poster, sul tavolo infondo c’erano tutti i miei CD esposti e, insieme a quest’ultimi, il calendario fermo al mese di maggio, il mio mese.
La sala fantastica, piena di persone pronte ad accogliermi ed io emozionato; più che altro spaventato perché il mio inglese avrebbe potuto far danni!
Il concerto termina. Della sala non ho visto più la fine, la gente in piedi ed io con le lacrime di gioia e commozione.
Penso di aver firmato più dischi in Inghilterra che in Italia!
Come inizio non posso lamentarmi.

Accordion Anthology

Accordion Anthology is a belated sequel to the ‘An A to Z of the Accordion’ series, written between 2003 and 2009. The Accordion Anthology is similar in writing style and content, but is near A4 page sized, most of the 320 photographs are in colour, and this book includes some unique autobiographical articles. The articles include Getting to Know the Accordion, Making a start, Accordion Tips and Hints (Steve Roxton), Be a Better Player (Rosemary Wright), Use of the Couplers (James Sexton), Playing For Others (Rosemary Wright), The Ken Hopkins Collection, Evolution of the Accordion, Manfrini Accordions, The Accordion Concerto, The Accordion and Pop Music, Accordion Dynasties, Tales & Trivia, Polka and the Accordion, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, etc. The autobiographical contributions are from Jack Emblow, David Vernon, Freeland Barbour, Gordon Pattullo, John Jones MBE, Paul Chamberlain, Pearl Fawcett-Adriano, Stewart Walker, and Rob Howard. Biographies include André Verchuren, Brandon McPhee, Classic Kyiv Duo, Ksenija Sidorova, Martynas Levickis, Gervasio Marcosignori, John Leslie, Eddie Hession, Amanda Robinson, Dawn Loombe, Helen Maher, Helen Rich, Malachy Cairns, Michael Coyne, Joe Cooley, William Hannah, and more.

Accordion Anthology is a high quality hardback - the ideal Christmas or birthday present for any accordion enthusiast!

The book costs £15 + £3p/p (UK), from Rob Howard, 42 Avondale Rd, Edgeley, Stockport, Cheshire SK3 9NY. (Total overseas prices: EU – 27 Euro, USA/Canada - $37). Paypal accepted, and is especially preferred for overseas transactions as it obviates high bank charges. For further details contact Rob Howard on (0161) 480 8858; email: robaccord5@hotmail.com

Stockport Accordion Club through the years
2017 is the 30th year since Clifford Wood reformed his band in 1987 that evolved into the present Stockport Accordion Club, and the 80th year since the original club was formed in October 1937. To celebrate these anniversaries Stockport Accordion Club through the years has been published. Rob Howard has written the main text, and there are also interesting personal contributions from Pearl Fawcett-Adriano (Preface), Adrienne Sharpe (Adrienne meets up with Roy & Dot Hamlet, That first night at the Hollywood, Playing on Club Night), Dorothy Brincat (Alternative Talents), Graham Bullough (Memories of SAC), John Curvis (It’s in the blood), Chris Green (Looking back…), Rob Howard (Clifford Wood 1921-2002, Stuart Thomas Remembered, Some memories of the CWAO, Rob looks back at the Club Nights, The French Connection), John Jones MBE (The Accordion and Me, John Jones tells about the day he went to Buckingham Palace), Tony Marchell (Memories of Cliff Wood), Kevin Munster (Remembering the 1950s), John Nixon (John Nixon reflects…), Derek Pritchard (Derek Pritchard’s Accordion Origins), Wendy Ryan (The Ryan Family), John Trigg (Trip Down Memory Lane, Christmas Party Time Again!), and Brennan Wilson (Performance Nerves). The book includes articles about the club’s recent Musical Directors Clifford Wood, Peter Whiteley, Brian Jenkins and Derek Stubbs, President Pearl Fawcett-Adriano, Vice Presidents John Nixon and Walter Perrie, and former President Johnny Coleclough.
Published as a near A4 sized hardback, it costs £15 + £3p/p from Rob Howard, 42 Avondale Rd, Edgeley, Stockport, Cheshire SK3 9NY. This limited edition souvenir book, a high quality hardback, includes over 200 photographs, including several accordion band line-up photos from the 1950s to 2017.
Jack Emblow comments: “You don’t have to live in the Stockport area to appreciate Rob Howard’s ‘Stockport Accordion Club through the years’. Packed with interesting and entertaining features, it will be enjoyed by accordion enthusiasts everywhere. Written in Rob’s amusing and readable style, and with lots of fine quality pictures, it is a worthy addition to his excellent series of accordion related books. Well done Rob!”
