Harmonica Almanac – January 23

Cyril Davies was born on this day in 1932. He began playing harmonica professionally during the early 1950’s, eventually teaming up with Alexis Korner to form one the most influential British bands, “Blues Incorporated”.


Country harmonica legend Wayne Raney died on this day in 1993. He had begun playing at the age of 5 and was playing on the radio by the time he was 13. He spent a good part of his career working with fellow harmonica player Lonnie Glosson.

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