Event type: All Ages
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
