Most people think they don't like polka music, but before you know it you will be tapping your feet blissfully as you slowly give yourself over to your inner polka fan.
Combine that with a unique country music blend and you have "The Smilin' Scandinavians", one of the Pacific Northwest's finest bands. Ranging from beer hall music to country western, Scandinavian to Finnish, The Smilin' Scandinavians drive home a power packed musical punch that will leave you waltzing the night away. Amazing musicianship combined with infectious songs, this band is not to be ignored!
The Smilin' Scandinavians is fronted by Toby Hanson, accordionist extraordinaire who manages to bring the instrument into a new context with his unique blend of polka and country music. Also appearing on NORTHWEST POLKA COUNTRY are: Emily Cowgill, Vinny Lech, Lyle Schaefer, Danielle McCutcheon, Dave Harmonson, and Mended Heart.
