Irish Accordion Player - 97 Years Old

My friend, Bob Conroy, called me yesterday to tell me about John "The Yank" Harringon, a 97-year old Irish-American accordion player brought up in Montana and the Beara Penninsula of Co. Cork.

His biography is well worth reading - a very interesting story, very well written. You can find it at http://fp1.in-tch.com/www.johntheyank.org/bio.htm

Does anyone remember Michael Kennedy, an older Irish-American accordion player who lived in Cincinnati in the 1970s. Malcolm Dalgliesh and Grey Larsen produced an LP for him. I met him when I was touring with The Flying Cloud. I recall we did a gig with him.

All the best,
Dan Milner

Dan, I posted a message about John the Yank when his CD came out and linked to his website. It's a great CD, and he is a great little man. Here is his website John the Yank
