Harmonica Almanac – June 5
Multi-instrumentalist, including the harmonica Mindy Jostyn was born on this day in 1956. Mindy began playing music at the age of two and worked primarily as a “sideman” with artists like Dolly Parton, John Mellencamp, The Hooters, Billy Joel and others in addition to recording several solo albums of her own.
U.S. President Ronald Reagan learned how to play “Red River Valley” on the harmonica while recovering from the assassination attempt. Reagan died on this day in 2004.
That’s it for today. Have fun and practice!
