Polka Pals - Live on Stage!

The newly-formed local musical duo of Ken Wisneski and Terry Ross will cheer you up with polkas, waltzes, and lively ethnic tunes that will make your feet want to tap and your hands want to clap!

Ken Wisneski resides in Kinde, Michigan and he has been squeezing tunes out of an accordion for 35 years. Ken has been a member of several Polish/Variety bands in the area, and in addition to the accordion plays piano and organ. His diversified musical interests include Polish, German, Italian and Irish along with popular Standards. Ken has brought his lively music to many festivals and private parties throughout the Thumb, Bay City and Detroit areas.

Terry Ross, from Port Crescent, is a retired school band and choir teacher. Since first plunking on a friend's piano at a Christmas party over 60 years ago, he has attempted to learn an impractical number of instruments. He has actually succeeded with a few of them and those are the ones he will play at the Farmers Market. Ethnic music has always been of interest to him and has led him to perform Russian, Israeli, Irish, German, Mexican, Salvadoran, and now Polish folk music.

The entertainment runs from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. downtown at the stage adjacent to the historic gymnasium during the Farmers Market. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the free concert during Market hours. Complete information about the Port Austin Farmers Market can be found at
