    Thanks for sharing these. Are these songs from the 1930s (roughly).

    Adolph Hofner, a western swing band leader from the 1930s-1980s recorded some songs in Czech and some were from the old country.

    If you haven't already come across it, you might also be interested in the Smithsonian Folkways compilation Texas-Czech, Bohemian, and Moravian Bands with 27 selections from 1927-1959.

    The first one is an adapation of an old folk song. I have no idea how old the adaptation is but the folk song itself is at least 200 years old, likely more than that, I'm not sure if anyone really knows...

    Yes, the first song is old folk. But the arrangement is old only one month :-) All the songs I have arranged by myself.
