Gina Brannelli

Co-founder and British accordion champion Gina Brannelli is our returning 2003 Honorary Director and Master of Ceremonies!

Gina has won many accordion awards in her lifetime, including being twice named national champion for the Commonwealth nations. She represented the UK in the Coupe Mondiale and won first place. Gina is also a concert pianist and has a master’s degree in music, performance and education. In her words, “I have played the piano from 5 years of age, but my entire stage career has always featured the accordion. I am proud to present the accordion, as it has been part of my family for three generations!”

Gina toured for 12 years with Cunard Lines on the QE II. During this period, Gina continued to compose music and sold many of her works, which include several famous pop ballads. Today she runs the largest accordion shop in England, “Music World UK.” Beyond her many talents, you will find Gina to have a heart of gold, which is reflected in her music and warm personality.
