Fog City Blues: Big Harp George

May 31, 2017

George Bisharat is a San Francisco Bay Area blues singer and harmonica player who features the chromatic harmonica. The chromatic (compared to the ten-hole diatonic more common to blues) has a distinctive voice, and lends Big Harp George's sound a jazzy, contemporary, and sophisticated feel. 

George was a criminal defense attorney, award-winning professor of law at UC Hastings College of the Law, and expert commentator on law and politics in the Middle East before turning to music full time. George and his band will take the stage at Biscuits and Blues in San Francisco on June 10, and he joins host Devon Strolovitch for a preview this Wednesday 5/31 at 9 pm.
