There's another one from a long time ago called harmonica maddness ( with 2 d's ), also on youtube. It's from Sinister805.
Try it, you'll like it DC blues!

That's the link. Or you can type in harmonica maddness.......
It's hard to believe that at one time, harmonica was the most popular instrument. But it was!

No if you want to REALLY get different, go to youtube, type in Shtreiml, and watch a klezmer type band from Quebec playing in Poland.
What's amazing is normally, the lead instrument for this kind of music is a clarinet.
He's playing a DIATONIC harp! Simply amazing.

His name is Jason Rosenblatt.

That was truly astonishing.
I guess my Morecambe & Wise infused upbringing led me to expect the guys to have progressively larger harmonicas each time the camera cut to them, but apart from that it was pretty amazing. Thanks.
