Western Canadian Ukrainian Polka Song

Жвавий українсько-канадський оркестр! The Mountain Valley Old Timers playing on a truck waiting for the parade to start in Dauphin Manitoba at the 2009 Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival. The song is called Pete’s Special Polka.

That’s John Tomashewsky from Gilbert Plains Manitoba playing the dulcimer (cymbaly), and behind him from left to right from Dauphin, Manitoba are Elmer Zalischuk on rhythm guitar, Alvin Pentlichuk on fiddle, and Victor Belinsky on bass guitar, and from Mink Creek, Manitoba is Sam Hucal on rhythm guitar.
