Are you Tired of playing the Air Accordion? Well its your lucky day!
Linda Escobar is raffling two brand new Hohner accordions to benefit music scholarships for young musicians to go towards their music lessons, a new instrument, for recording, or anything that involves their music career.
The winners of the accordion raffles will be announced during the 19th Annual El Veterano Conjunto Festival on Sunday, November 11, 2018, at the Columbian Civic Center (a.k.a. Knights of Columbus Hall), 2137 Business Hwy 77 N, Robstown, Texas.
First prize: Hohner Compadre (GCF) Second Prize: Hohner Panther (GCF)
Held every year around Veteran’s Day in memory of Escobar’s father, Conjunto legend Eligio Escobar, the festival honors all veterans for their service to this country and also awards scholarships to young musicians on behalf of the Eligio Escobar Scholarship Fund.
“When I had the 1st Annual Veterano Conjunto festival, I never imagined that I’d still be organizing and having the 19th Annual,” Escobar told Tejano Nation. “I’m very grateful to all my Conjunto music followers that support this worthy cause of honoring our veterans and awarding scholarships to children who play Conjunto music. It’s all about paying it forward, so the music of our roots will continue for many years to come!”
2017 Scholarship Recipients: Joaquin Eliseo Linn, Marcos Cavazos, & David Martinez
