Titles Minnesota Polka Oral History Project: Interview with Larry Rysavy
Description The interview session took place in the basement of Rysavy's home on a Monday evening. His brother-in-law and fellow Czech bandleader, Marshall Miller, lived just down the street and Leary was able to interview the pair one after the other. The two interviews are cataloged separately. This interview covers the pair's involvement with Czech music and the general polka scene in Minnesota. After the session, each man played his concertina in turn so that Leary could take some picture. See the interview summary for further description.
