Harmonica Almanac – December 1

Harmonica band leader Jerry Murad was born on this day in 1918. As leader of the Harmonicats, Murad inspired a whole generation of chromatic harmonica players and harmonica trios.

Multi-instrumentalist Don “Sugarcane” Harris died on this day in 1999. Harris played quite a few instruments, including the harmonica. He was also very adept at playing in whatever style of music he happened to be asked to play.

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