Grammy nominated and Blues Music Award winning harmonica player and band leader Mark Hummel has been showcasing his extraordinary Harmonica Blowouts since 1981. They are always an event guaranteed to be first rate and not to miss. He consistently brings along some of the finest blues artists on the planet and this year’s version of the Blowout certainly finds him in mighty respectful company.
This year, aside from Mark, he will be joined by three of the world’s most renowned harp artists: Magic Dick formerly with the J. Geils Band, former Muddy Waters band member Jerry Portnoy, and founding member of War Lee Oskar. Also included in this night of blues magic will be Blues Music Award winning guitarist Duke Robillard who aside from his lengthy solo career has also played with Roomful of Blues and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.
