The bandoneon may be a musical cousin to the accordion. But as Bertram Levy describes it, when Argentine Tango began to gel in the early 1900s, some felt the accordion was too happy for tango; it didn’t possess the necessary darkness. A renowned musician who began in folk but has spent the better part of a decade devoted to tango, Levy will bring his Tangoheart quartet to Bainbridge next weekend, the first program in this year’s series of Bloedel Reserve summer concerts.

Let’s do right by Puget Sound

  • Jul 1, 2008 at 4:21PM

When I was young, a lot of years ago, we would come to Bainbridge for a week’s vacation. The beach was an infinite playground, especially for a city youngster like me. From morning to night we dug clams, fished, hunted for treasures, rode and swam our horses, found new birds for our house list, caught crabs, built driftwood and seaweed palaces, cooked over beach fires, poked at anemones under rafts, collected shells, beach glass and rocks with circles around them. It was a paradise. I vowed I would come back and live here. In 1973 I did.

Mother Sea desperately needs your help these days

  • Jul 2, 2008 at 12:00AM

I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea – except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, and ships change, it is because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.
