07/30/12 Professor Harp Sat On The Couch

Boston's Hugh Holmes was a Gene Krupa-inspired drummer until 1969, when an encounter with George Smith left him so enamored of the harmonica he dropped the sticks and picked up the harp and has not looked back since.

After years of playing with the likes of Solomon Burke (who gave him his nickname) and even playing with Muddy Waters, Professor now has a album out of his music.

I sat with the Professor and we discussed his incredible life and how he looks at himself now after all these years.

We spoke of all this while listening to cuts from They Call Me The Professor - The Undaunted Professor Harp
