Harmonica Almanac – August 31

Folk / Blues guitar and harmonica player “Spider” John Koerner was born on this day in 1938. Koerner was a part of the trio, Koerner, Ray & Glover as well as having a career as a solo musician. He usually played the harmonica on a neckbrace.

Singer-songwriter Van Morrison has been a major presence in Rock and Roll since he fronted the group, Them during the 1960’s. He sometimes plays the harmonica. Morrison was born on this day in 1945.

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