Carlos del Junco, Cuban-Canadian harmonica master, fashions sound the way Michelangelo sculpted his David: with daring and sensuality! Considered one of the world's greatest harmonica players is a pioneer of the "overblow" technique, allowing him to play a diatonic harmonica chromatically. The result is stunning: a sophisticated blues/jazz fusion from the sublime to raw to quirky. 

 

He's received numerous national and international awards in his 30 year career as a professional musician:

 

2017 SPAH (U.S.A. Society) Bernie Bray Harmonica Player of The Year Award nomination

2016 Maple Leaf Blues Nomination for Best Harmonica Player and Best Acoustic Duo (with Jimmy Bowskill for Blues Etc…)

2010 JUNO NOMINATION for STEADY MOVIN' cd 

EIGHT times Harmonica Player of the Year - Canadian Maple Blues Awards

2005 "Best Blues" Award - NOW Magazine, Toronto, ON

1998 JUNO NOMINATION for BIG BOY cd

1996 Blues Musician of the Year Award - Jazz Report Magazine

1993 Hohner World Harmonica Championship, Trossingen, Germany -Two Gold Medals in both diatonic blues and diatonic jazz

Tickets are also available for purchase at My Sister's Closet at 92 Walton St. in Port Hope and Zap Records at 45 King St. E in Cobourg.
