This strange report says the National Endowment for the Arts is ponying up $35,000 for an International Accordion Festival, which "celebrates the instrument's local identity and global reach," in 2007.
The story's short on specifics, though. Would this be the International Accordion Festival in San Antonio that we've been hoping to play? If so, it sounds like they've got the budget to bring us in next year. Sweeeeeeeeeeet.
