Harmonica Almanac – January 13

Lawman Wyatt Earp died on this day in 1929. Legend says that he played the harmonica.

Victor Pankowitz, also know as Vic Pace, died on this day in 2000. A childhood friend of Blackie Schackner, Pankowitz taught him many of the techniques for playing the harmonica. He was a student at the Borrah Minevitch Harmonica institute and played with The Philharmonicas and Herb Shriner’s harmonica band.

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