Country Music Hall of Fame


Nashville Cats: Salute to Accordion Player Joey Miskulin

Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 02:00pm

A prodigious talent who began playing professionally at thirteen, accordion master Joey Miskulin has contributed mightily to a wide range of recordings, including works by Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Paul McCartney, Shania Twain, U2, Townes Van Zandt, and Frank Yankovic. Miskulin has won multiple Grammy awards, has worked extensively in film and television, and is a key member of Grand Ole Opry group Riders in the Sky. Country Music Hall of Fame member Cowboy Jack Clement regularly called Miskulin “The greatest accordion player in the world,” and no one argued. The interview will be illustrated with vintage photos, film footage, and recordings, and Miskulin will perform. 

This Nashville Cats program is located in the Ford Theater. After the program Miskulin will sign commemorative Hatch Show Print posters. 

The program will be streamed live at
