Harmonica Almanac – September 17

Blues harmonica player Barbecue Bob Maglinte was born on this day in 1955. Bob is based out of the Boston area and has played with many Blues greats like Jimmy Rogers, Sunnyland Slim and many others.

Blues harmonica player Eddie Burks died on this day in 2005. Burks grew up in Mississippi, but stayed away from playing as a professional musician until his late 30’s, often playing on Chicago’s Maxwell Street.

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