Harmonica Almanac – December 25

Harmonica band leader Hugh “Pud” McCaskey was born on this day in 1922. McCaskey learned how to play harmonica while growing up in Pennsylvania. He was a part of several great harmonica bands, but the Stagg McMann trio stands out as one of the very best. McCaskey remained active in the harmonica until his death in 1989.

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