    Harmonikids Hohner-Sponsored Session with Troubled Youth in the Mississippi Delta

    Often my Harmonikids sessions have particularly deep-rooted personal meaning. This is especially true in the case of my return visits to the Sunflower Landing facility in Mississippi. So much of the music and musicians that made the Blues the most popular and beloved music ever to be played on the harmonica came from rural towns in the Mississippi Delta. Howling Wolf, James Cotton, and Sonny Boy Williamson are just a few of the great Blues harpmen to come directly from the area. In my teens I had the unsurpassed thrill of witnessing the legendary Clarksdale, Mississippi-born Bluesman Muddy Waters perform with his band that included the legendary Pinetop Perkins, James Cotton, and Bob Margolin. The experience changed my life and shaped my musical direction.

    On April 13, 2017 I provided a Hohner sponsored Harmonikids session to a classroom of 50 of special needs and disadvantaged kids to a Boys and Girls Club in Kennewick, Washington. In spite of their many diverse backgrounds and personal obstacles, all students were fully focused and engaged throughout the 90 minute session. They giggled with joy and astonishment as I entertained them. Then each was thrilled as I gently taught them to accurately play four songs on their new Hohner harmonicas.

    Harmonikids Sessions for Challenged Youth in Northern Utah

    On March 5, 2017 I brought my Hohner-sponsored Harmonikids session to the Salt Lake Valley Detention Center (SLVDC), In Salt Lake City Utah.
