Harmonica Almanac – May 7
Whether or not he actually played the harmonica is unknown, but Gary Cooper’s character in the movie “Meet John Doe” did. Cooper was born on this day in 1901.
Country / Gospel Singer-songwriter Brother Claude Ely died on this day in 1978. Ely began playing music while recovering from Tuberculosis. Ely played both guitar and harmonica and remained active in music for the rest of his life.
That’s it for today. Have fun and practice!
