About Walter

Walter Ostanek is one of the living legends of polka music. The three-time Grammy winner has been entertaining since his teens. He first achieved notice in the 1950s as the leader of a young generation of performers inspired by the Cleveland-Style classics – Frank Yankovic, Johnny Pecon, Johnny Vadnal, Eddie Habat and Kenny Bass. Walter’s sunny delivery was ideal for television and his popular polka show brought good-time music into Canadian homes.
