For some reason, it makes a lot of people laugh — but for me, I always had a weakness for the nasal drawl of a harmonica. Around the campfire, perhaps, its bright sound cheerful, brash, unabashed.
But Bach? Rossini? In a concert hall?
Who knew? Try it out:
Buddy Greene on the harmonica, and if you’re amazed and delighted — there’s a bunch more on youtube.
(For something else cheerful, try today’s Eye Candy, Abundance, on sister blog A View from the Woods)
