John J. Kimmel

Profile:
Composer and Accordianist
13 December 1866 - 18 September 1942
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.

His earliest recordings, done on Edison Wax Cylinder was around 1906.[7] Kimmel's works often appeared under the name Kimmble, and he was known to bill himself as the Irish Dutchman (cf. Deutsch).
