Joe Derrane, the greatest Irish music button box player of all time.

Joe Derrane passed away on Friday, following a long illness. He is, by common assent, the greatest Irish music button box player of all time. The Boston native set new standards. A truly wonderful gentleman and miraculous musician. This tape is a bit older, but shows Joe at the height of his powers. (BTW, that’s Chicago’s Liz Carroll sitting on Joe’s right.) R.I.P.
