Harmonica Almanac – December 14

Country harmonica pioneer Deford Bailey was born on this day in 1899. Bailey was the first harmonica star of the Grand Old Opry and made some of the first records to be recorded in Nashville. He was also a major influence on a young Sonny Terry.

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