Rossco Blues: Harmonica

Rossco is a master craftsman of the blues harp. A harmonica fanatic and acclaimed tutor, he has “Been Livin with the Blues” ever since the 60s, when he heard the song of the same name, played by the fantastic Sonny Terry, with Brownie McGhee on guitar and vocals. He had the privilege of playing with them on one of their rare appearances in the UK. This began the rollercoaster of playing Country and Chicago Blues around the clubs and pubs, with a number of different bands, where he gained a love of playing all styles of music on the harmonica. Over the years he has played with the T&D Trio, Chris Ford Davis, The Jimmy Smith Duo, Dave Smith Duo, The Rhythm Kickers and the LJB Band.
