Harmonica Almanac – June 1

Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman

Actor Morgan Freeman was born on this day in 1937. Freeman played the harmonica in the movie “The Shawshank Redemption”. While I’m not sure whether Mr. Freeman actually plays the harmonica, he’s played both the President of the United States and God, so harmonica should be something he can play as well.

John Lee “Sonny Boy” Williamson
