A Blues Harmonica Concert

Today my_partner_doug and I went to a blues harmonica concert at the Douglas-Hart Nature Center in Mattoon.  Deak Harp performed on harmonica, electric guitar and electric banjo, and drum.  It was pretty cool.  The guy plays like a cricket on caffeine, very energetic stuff.  He also told stories about learning to play the harmonica, and the instrument's history.  I had not known that the harmonica was invented in China.

Deak is a traveling musician who performs around Illinois and other states as well, mainly Chicago-style blues. Watch for him to appear at other events; his website lists a schedule.
