Harmonica Almanac – October 15

Folk singer-songwriter, guitar and harmonica player Barry McGuire was born on this day in 1935. McGuire was a part of the New Christy Minstrels before scoring a solo hit with the song “Eve of Destruction” which featured him playing harmonica on a neckbrace.

Country singer-songwriter, banjo and harmonica player David Holt is a well-known storyteller and musician who has hosted several TV series. He learned how to play the harmonica as a teenager from cowboy singer Carl T. Sprague. Holt was born on this day in 1946.

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