06/13/11 Carlos del Junco Sat On The Couch

Carlos del Junco is the best harp player you probably do not know.

His list of awards and honors is impressive; winning Harmonica Player of the Year - at the Canadian Maple Blues Awards 7 times, was nominated for the Juno Award (Canada's Grammy) for two of his albums, and won two Gold medals at the 1993 Hohner World Harmonica Championship.

I sat with Carlos and we discussed how the harp has become a part of his life, his influences and his desires moving forward.

We also caught some great tunes from his album "Mongrel Mash."
