THE polka classic! Beer Barrel Polka is presented here in an arrangement for the instrumentation of Alford’s “Hungry Five” series of Polka band books. In this edition the popular melody gets passed around between the sections and fun accompaniment patterns sneak in from time to time to keep things interesting for players and listeners alike. The familiar TRIO section is likely to get a whole bunch of partiers singing right along with your ensemble.
Every Hungry Five band should have this chart at the ready at all times as it gets requested so often. There are no extreme range or technical challenges in this arrangement for the most part, so even fairly young ensembles could use this to include some polka fun on a German band performance. Ready to go for your Oktoberfest gig!
