ALBUM REVIEW: In 2009, Chris Kelly, who started his musical career in the hamlet of Cloquet with youthful groups like the duo Chris & Matt and Midcoast Sound before moving on up to Medford, and Old Knifey and the Cutthroats, decided to transport his base of activities from Duluth to Seattle based on the word about that area’s burgeoning music scene.
Students from Esko, Carlton, Cloquet and Wrenshall were among the region’s top high school musicians to gather Oct. 20 at the University of Wisconsin Superior for a day of advanced skill clinics and performances during the annual Tri-State Honor Bands Festival.
According to Florian Chmielewski, polka started some 150 years ago when a 15-year-old Czechoslovakian girl set to music the rhythmic marching of soldiers.
“She was watching the soldiers, you know how they do that quick catch-up step,” Chmielewski said. “You keep doing that step during the polka.”
From Czechoslovakia, the polka spread across Europe, to Poland and Austria, even to the ballrooms in Paris.
When Florian Chmielewski played his accordion last Tuesday at the Cloquet Senior Center, Maria Schroeder and Evelyn Graham were sitting front and center.
“We’re a bunch of groupies,” said Graham with a chuckle. “We go with [the Chmielewski Fun Time Band] to Branson, North Dakota, Wisconsin, you name it.”
