Old German Polka – played by Ron Kerle

(recording made in Minden, QLD in November 1995)

Ron Kerle is playing an old German polka.  Ron stated that this tune was often played by a nearby farmer and squeezebox player, Alf Vogel.  This tune is played on the old 6-stopper single-row Windjammer accordion.  These large, old accordions are hard to handle and are much sought after today.  These 6-stopper machines were much favoured by the old ‘German’ players.
