25 Years of the Blues Harmonica Blowout on Fog City Blues

Bay Area harp master Mark Hummel started the Blues Harmonica Blowout back in 1991. Since then it has grown into a much-heralded event featuring the most famous blues players alive, including John Mayall, James Cotton, Billy Boy Arnold, Charlie Musselwhite, and many more. 

2016 mark the 25th year of the Blowout, so Mark will be mixing it up with younger and older players. He joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 1/20 at 9 pm for a preview of next week's shows at Yoshi's in Oakland.
