Happy Hour Harmonica Podcast
Paul Lamb interview
Apr 10, 2020 Season 1 Episode 1
Neil Warren

First up in the podcast I'm delighted to welcome a certain Mr Paul Lamb.
Paul is a living legend of blues harmonica.
He's been performing for over 45 years now, would you believe. He has a multitude of great albums to his name, and is inducted in the Blues Hall of Fame.
Paul tells us how it all unfolded, meeting greats such as Junior Wells and his harmonica hero Sonny Terry along the way.
With some tips on how aspiring harmonica players can try to emulate his tremendous success.
The secret is all in "playing what you feel, and feeling what you play".
