My Father's Violin: O Gwiazdo Betlejemska
When I hear the lyrics,
"Graj, dudka, graj! Graj, panu, graj!",
I think of my dad.
Pan Frank H. Johnson, Sr.
"Graj, Panu, Graj" is in part an homage to the family musicians who brought Polish music
into our lives. I played the pizzicato part in "O Gwiadza Betlejemska" on my father's violin.
