The tuba and the saxophone were among the instruments heard during a jam session for the Ellsworth Polka Fest. The 35th version of the local event was again staged at the Pierce County Fairgrounds under mostly typical summer conditions.
People enjoyed dancing under the fairgrounds shelter during a jam session on what proved to be one of the most comfortable Polka Fest evenings. Another dance floor was available under a tent on the grounds.
The Polka Fest jam session audience was treated to concertina playing by 13-year-old Josh Eisdorf of Hastings, Minn. The youth is following the lead of his grandfather, who’s a member of a band which performed at the event.
