Tune of the Week for June 4, 2012
Brian Marshall is a fiddler and band leader from the Polonia (Polish colony) of East Texas, between Houston and Dallas. He was raised with old village dance music played by local fiddlers like John Meleski, Raymond Zievert, and–most influential of all–Steve Oksonski. While Brian leads a full-on polka band, The Tex-Slavic Playboys, the following tune from his solo CD features and old country sound.
Brian Marshall & Ron Kasowski on fiddles, Mark Rubin on bowed bass
This notation is just a skeleton. Get Brian’s CD from CDBaby and hear his exciting variations every time through.
