Harmonica Almanac – October 18

Blues harmonica pioneer Snooky Pryor died on this day in 2006. Pryor began playing the harmonica when he was fourteen and was soon working professionally. He is said to have been one of the very first to amplify the harmonica, playing through PA systems while serving in World War Two.

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