I just wanted to let everyone know about a new website that was just posted and is currently being developed for all polka fans, musicians, promoters—pretty much anyone interested in polka music. www.Polkasunited.com is a forum for people to communicate ideas and learn about what’s going on with polka music these days. Although the site is just in its infancy, I think it’s designed very well and could become a great place for fans from throughout the nation (and world for that matter) to share their views and check out stuff about the music.
Personally, I think this is a great idea and I look forward to hopefully taking part in some good discussion about where our music is heading. Additionally- there are areas set up to inquire about lyrics and music for songs- so musicians can help each other to keep the traditions alive. Check out the site—and join in… I’m really curious to see the interaction of fans from the Chicago Polish scene, Texas Czech land, Cleveland Slovenians and… well, everyone… you might be surprised about what’s out there!
