These events have featured every major legend on blues harp as well as almost every player of note on the instrument- a who's who of players. Mark Hummel is a road warrior - a true Blues Survivor. Along the way, he has crafted his own trademark harmonica sound - a subtle combination of tone, phrasing and attack combined with a strong sense of swing.
