The reemergence of Irish-American traditional musician, Joe Derrane following 40 years of neglecting his traditional Irish button accordion is the subject of this MPBN Community Films piece.

Joe Derrane's reappearance at the Wolftrap National Irish Festival in 1994 was heralded as a landmark occasion in Irish traditional music circles.
