Harmonica History in Books. Today’s harmonica world is the result of the pioneering activities of manufacturers, composers, performers and amateur players. A lot has happened in the last 100 years but it is not very well documented or understood. These books provide some of the backgound to the artists and the way the music developed. […]
The history of the harmonica is told by the performers and the music they recorded. Most of the major music collectors have died but this website shares some of the recordings from their collections – shellac, vinyl, cassette and reel to reel tapes, CDs, film and video tapes. It includes all music styles and harmonica types.
