Harmonica Almanac – August 27

Blues steel guitar and harmonica player Harding “Hop” Wilson died on this day in 1975. Wilson got his nickname from the way pronounced the word harp. He learned to play the harmonica while growing up in Texas. He started working professionally in the 1950’s and remained active in music until his death.

That’s it for today. Have fun and practice!
