  • Guy Klucevsek and Polka From the Fringe

    Accordionist and composer Guy Klucevsek stops by for a visit, on the occasion of the reissue of “Polka From the Fringe,” 29 previously out-of-print tracks for accordion by Klucevsek and 27 other composers.  With titles like Lois V Vierk’s “Attack Cat Polka,” or Elliott Sharp’s jolt of punk in “Happy Chappie Polka,” there’s a bit of playful wackiness to the collection, yet also some loveliness – like William Duckworth’s “Polking Around” and Peter Garland’s “Club Nada Polka.”
