Welcome the Reading Accordion Group website


eading Accordion Group is a small piano accordion ensemble who meet on a weekly basis to make music.  We play a varied mix of music ranging from popular to light classical, sing alongs to jazz and rock and roll.  See our Repertoire spreadsheet for more details 

We also entertain at retirement homes and clubs in the Reading, Twyford, Wokingham and Maidenhead area and can tailor programmes to suit most needs.

We are available to play at charity functions to help with fund raising.  See the Concerts pages for details of past  charity events.  

For bookings please contact the secretary via email  raggroup@yahoo.co.uk

We are always looking for new musicians to join us, so if you play the accordion, or any other instrument for that matter, can sight read music and are looking for a musical challenge please contact the secretary. We rehearse on a Tuesday evening at various venues in Woodley, Tilehurst and Charvil.
Our aim is to further the musical ability of members, to make music together, to entertain and to raise money for charities
