Thread: Speaking of harp players...

Who are some of your favorite players? I really like Ace. Butterfield, Cotton, and Little Walter.

Toot Thielmans from a different school, as well.

I know there are tons of others. Just opening things up...

Who else?

eap,
Steve

I always really liked Alan Wilson aka the Blind Owl of Canned Heat fame. He could really bend some notes!

Steve Miller
He & Norton Buffalo did an awesome dueling harps part at a Music Hall show in Boston back in the day (around when Fly Like An Eagle was out)

also Rick Estrin, the singer/harp player in Little Charlie & the Nightcats

"On the lickin' stick, Mr. Magic Dick" -- he's tops in my book


Zambi - 5/19/2017 at 06:51 PM

Howard Levy from the Flecktones. (Not the first that would come to mind, but of the ones not already mentioned....)


Rusty - 5/19/2017 at 07:58 PM

Mick Jagger. Seriously.

Good call on Rick Estrin. Charlie Batty (guitarist for Little Charlie & the Night Cats) is also a great harp player.

Not mentioning the GOAT sooner was like discussing Baseball and forgetting to talk about Babe Ruth


Stephen - 5/22/2017 at 03:04 PM

Little Walter & Junior Wells are right there w/Sonny Boy Williamson -- then James Cotton.......
Magic Dick really got me into all these players -- his harp playing in J. Geils was The Bomb
Didn't know Charlie Baty was a harp player too Rusty -- his guitar solo on Ten Years Ago, from their live record -- fan-tastic
