Breathe Easy - Music and Stories for Assisted Living and Shut-Ins!

The Harmonica has a very long and world wide history. People also refer to it as the Mississippi Sax, the Tin Sandwich, the Mouth Organ and Harp. My 35 years of performance history with the instrument allows me to play many styles and musical pieces. From it’s 1821 inception right up to the music of today your audience will experience a wide variety of songs that they know and love.

Every time I play for a group, inevitably, guests come to me with wonderful stories of their past experiences with family members, their friends and the Harmonica. This instrument has been a friend to me for many years. Taking me places I would never have gone without its introduction. What has meant the most to me, all these years, is the joy and happiness it brings to those that listen.

Now I have the best of both worlds. Not just the ability to play with the singular soulful sounds of harmonica but I can also present a vast array of musical choices with an amazing catalogue of backing instrumentation spanning from solo piano to full orchestra. I have included samples below for you to audition.
