Harmonica Almanac – December 5

Blues harmonica giant Sonny Boy Williamson II was born on this day in 1897. Williamson began playing at the age of five and during his life was a major influence on a generation of harmonica players, including teaching his brother-in-law, Howlin’ Wolf, how to play.

Blues harmonica player Andy Just played with the Ford Blues Band as well as recording several solo albums of his own. Just was born on this day in 1954.

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