A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
Singer-songwriter-humorist-satirist Mark Graham shows us yet another layer of his considerable talents with Southern Old Time Harmonica. Though his other albums include some harmonica work, with this effort he shows a range of versatility on the instrument that is much broader than one might anticipate. |
With traditional southern string tunes, blues, and the melodic sounds of Ireland and Scotland, Graham not only demonstrates his considerable skill on the harp, but broadens our definition of what harmonica music is. Joined by Orville Johnson, Danny Barnes and other gifted musicians, Graham conveys a feeling and emotion through the harmonica that show not only his depth as a musician, but as a human being.
Southern Old Time Harmonica is a first rate collection of music, and a unique addition to one's music collection. Let it run at the end for a hidden bonus track that includes some cool samples, and a great jam on Clinch Mountain Backstep.
