In cart Not available Out of stock

This version of "Gary’s Polka" was collected by LeRoy Larson, head of the Minnesota Scandinavian Ensemble, and is a composite version of those played by Calmer Brenna, a Norwegian fiddler from Middle River, MN, and Bill Sherburne of Spring Grove. While the lazy beginning of Johnson’s version was inspired by an old cowboy movie, the flute and clarinet runs in the second half play with both polka and jazz.
