Ron also plays several selections on this CD. The CD contains several vocals sung in Slovenian and English. Ron\'s Button Accordion Recordings including this recording are played on radio and television and sold worldwide. Why did the Setniker Family record this Slovenian Button Accordion CD which contains 27 polkas and waltzes? Our traditional Southern-European Button Accordion Music is intended as a tribute to the hopeful, determined enduring spirit of Minnesota's Iron Range community. We wish to thank our immigrant ancestors who always found a way to prevail in the face of uncertainty and harsh conditions. It is their loyalty to family and country and each sacrifice made-whether working long hours in minus 30 degree Fahrenheit Cold, eating smaller portions so their children could eat, or laying down their lives for their country-that we hope to honor. Their vision, belief and pride ensured that future generations would have a better life. To them, we want to say, "Here's to you and "Thank you." The Setniker Family - Ron Setniker and daughter's, Shelby and Susan Setniker TRADITION - A TRIBUTE TO IMMIGRANT FAMILIES - VINTAGE IRON RANGE COLLECTOR'S EDITION PLAYED SETNIKER STYLE - commemorates those who paved the way long ago. It is a salute to our ancestors say Ron Setniker and his two daughter's - Shelby and Susan Setniker of Biwabik, Minnesota, located in Northeastern Minnesota, on Minnesota's, Mesabi Iron Range. We tried to stick with Slovenian Button Accordion Polkas and Waltzes played at the turn of the century in our home and various homes. Though the CD pays tribute to our Slovenian Heritage, it is a salute to our ancestors and all immigrant families of all nationalities on Minnesota's Iron Range. The CD is recommended for the archives of libraries and historical organizations to preserve Slovenian Button Accordion Music as it was played and sung in the 1800s and early 1900s. This hit release - Long Play CD recording, truly done in the Setniker Style, contains a flair of 27 Slovenian Button Accordion Polkas and Waltzes featuring the high energy Button Accordion Styleings of Ron Setniker's multi-talented daughter's, Shelby and Susan, playing their Diatonic Button Accordions and Ron playing his rare Half Chromatic Button Accordion. The unique sound and carefree styling of this CD definitely characterizes Slovenian Button Accordion Music of yesteryear and today. It definitely is the fast lane of Button Accordion Music, a Button Accordion Sensation! Half Chromatic Button Accordions similar to Ron's rare Half Chromatic Button Accordion were played extensively by the early pioneers. Ron is one of only about three button accordionists in the entire country and the only one on Minnesota's Iron Range, performing and recording with the rare Half Chromatic Button Accordion. Very few Button Accordionist\'s have mastered and recorded with both the Diatonic and Half Chromatic Button Accordions as Ron Setniker has done. This trendy, up-scale and memerable CD is special to Ron Setniker. It touched my heart as a father to record this CD. With my beautiful daughter's, Shelby and Susan. It is a treasured memory I will always remember. It certainly turned moments into memories. The polka, "Because Your Brown Eyes Blink," is a tribute Ron's brown-eyed daughter's and granddaughter, Sofia Sue, (Shelby's daughter.) Sofia Sue, we say is the inspiration for this recording. "Beautiful Sofia's Waltz" was also recorded on this CD by Ron, as a tribute to his beautiful granddaughter. Lastly, dance or just sit back and enjoy the passionate energetic sounds of the Button Accordion as the Setniker Family plays a classic collection of 27 Pure Slovenian Button Accordion Polkas and Waltzes, truly done in the Setniker Style.
