"This item is part of the Folkways archives.  The original liner notes from the LP are included."

One of the first to record the diatonic melodeon, John Kimmel's influence on Irish traditional music continues today through the playing of Jackie Daly, Joe Burke, and others. Kimmel's wide repertoire also includes pop tunes and German waltzes, and this collection presents some of his earliest and rarest recordings, including an unparalleled rendition of "Fitzmaurice's Polka."
