BELINDA TREBLE WINS TRIPLE CROWN AT THE FLEETWOOD ACCORDION DAY, THE CMA AWARD BEING THE COUPE MONDIALE ENTRY SECTION.

I am delighted to report that the Fleetwood Accordion and Music Festival was a complete success. The

accordion day with over 50 sections and 225 entries was held in 3 sections of the Marine Hall, with 3 sets of adjudicators. From the Adjudicators point of view, it was a complete success, although an hour behind

because of late arrivals, with the professionalism of the Adjudicators, we ended up on schedule.

If there was a more perfect ending to a superb day, the concert was indeed a true finale with The incredible Colchester Showband under the direction of Elaine Beecham, and the superb playing of Nina Suscenko.

Ken Hartley with hilarious comedy and superb accordion expertise, Larysa Bodell and Stefan Andrusyschyn giving a marvelous duet performance and the Club Maestros on top form with Justin Ryan for Stockport, David Batty Organiser of the Leyland Accordion club seemed very much at home on the

Marine Hall Stage, giving the audience a treat with his very varied program. Andrew Figg and Belinda Treble representing our club, both played magnificently.

The reception for the Concert set the mood with Jeff and Jay, this was a new idea, and it was superb.

The Les Dawson Festival day had over 120 entries with the Musician of the Year and Entertainment Sections were won by an accordionist, firstly Larysa Bodell with her recital program, and Andrew Figg with his

entertainment set. The piano and keyboard sections well supported, with Christina Briggs School of music taking home trophies from the event, The Marsh Mill School, every pupil won an award, well done all of you.

I must say thanks to all who helped get this event on the road, on the day, without you it would have been impossible, thank you Michael Figg for all your hard work raising money for the trophies, and help on the day. To John Fairclough, and all the team, Thank You very much for making this Festival the success it was.
