The Germans from Russia Heritage Collection is pleased to provide this CD of the well known Volga German folk singer, musician and humorist. This CD is the first in a series that are produced by Larry Weigel, son of Lawrence Weigel.

This humorous talk was presented in 1989 at the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia Convention held in Lincoln, Nebraska. Lawrence Weigel tells funny stories about "Der Miser: from Russia, a Lutheran minister, the cabbage and barrel tale, the state representative, the chandelier, the arrival of the Bishop of Munjor, two old men at a funeral, men in the tavern in Schoenchen, the stolen pig, and the holy water. You can tell by the laughter that the crowd loved his presentation. The recording finishes with some good old fashioned Volga German music played by his beloved keyboard organ.
