Description

In the 1850s, clockmaker Matthias Hohner began making harmonicas in Germany. By the turn of the century, his market
expanded to America where among countless others, African Americans claimed the instrument as their own. Classic
Harmonica Blues from Smithsonian Folkways brims with the creativity of soulful harmonica greats of the 20th century,
including Sonny Terry, Doctor Ross, Phil Wiggins, and more. Culled from the historic Folkways Records collection and
live performances at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, these recordings take us to the heart of the classic American
blues tradition.
