John Kimmel’s Accordion Fantasy
I learnt this from Humdinger by Paul Brock and Enda Scahill. It took me ages to learn, so I hope it is right. Some people might prefer to play parts of it an octave lower to avoid the high Ds.
John J. Kimmel - Medley of straight jigs
Source recording here: http://freemusicarchive.org/member/JoeMc/blog/John_J_Kimmel_Ten_Buttons_Will_Dazzle Note that the last part is a souped up rendition of Swanee River.
What’s the origin of this tune, is it irish? Brilliant all the same!
It seems that the title "Accordion Fantasy" was a tribute by Joe Derrane to the playing of John J Kimmel taken from his recordings.
