Profile:

A German-American musician known for playing Irish, Scottish, and American music on the 1-row diatonic accordion (or melodeon).[3][4] Though not Irish-American, but rather German-American (born in Brooklyn to German immigrants Margaretha Schmidt and John Kimmel) Kimmel's playing had an enduring effect on the playing of the Irish accordion.
