It’s Happiness (Happiness is Dancing the Polka)

by Don Larson

A friend of mine from the accordion club lent me a documentary on how the older polka generation is passing the tradition to the youth…. community working as community can and should.   Featured in the video is a “Concertina Bar” in Milwaukee.   Wisconsin is a quirky place.  The owner of this bar would not let his nephew play a piano accordion at the bar, but he did let a guitar player play there…. is this some sort of message about Wisconsin’s brand of “tolerance” for all people… or just their form of joking…. I wonder if a banjo player or bagpipe player has tried to play at “The Concertina Bar”   I’d love to hear the outcome…. (-:
