The Serfs, a popular Portsmouth, NH based band, has been delighting audiences for 20 years with its unique blend of instruments and musical genres. The group was born back in 1989 when accordionist Gary Sredzienski was strolling from table to table playing traditional music at a Polish wedding. Also present at the wedding was the popular Portsmouth, NH surf/rockabilly band once known as the ‘Beach Cowboys’. These 2 musical acts fused and gave birth to a unique group which combined traditional world music with 50s/60s style instrumental rock. One of the earliest objectives of the band was to elevate the much maligned image of the piano accordion. Not dwelling upon one genre of music, the Serfs draw from a wide variety of traditional world music styles and its own compositions to cross boundaries and elevate the accordion’s image to a diverse multicultural vocalist.
