Harmonica Almanac – April 25
Vaudeville harmonica player Hugh McCaskey died on this day in 1988. McCaskey started playing the harmonica as a child and met up with Manny Smith and Paul Steigerwald while playing in a WPA band. The three formed the Stagg McMann Trio after World War Two. McCaskey later played with the Harmonicats, filling in for various members when needed.
That’s it for today. Have fun and practice!
