Clarinet polka



Here's a nice version on uke.

The clarinet polka is a Polish number. In Poland, it is called dziadek, which means Grandfather. Growing up, we called my grandpa on my mom's side Dziadek, and as a little kid who didn't speak Polish, I thought it was his given name. I was surprised and confused when I discovered his name was actually Andy.

Here's a fiddle version with a country and western flair. Finally, here's those madcaps from Texas, Brave Combo.

OK OK, one more. I can't close this post without a banjo version. I'll send this one out to Salvalinas, who likes the banjo.
