William Grant, [born in 1908], was born near Pittsview, Alabama...He was given a harmonica one Christmas, and he says he learned how to play it while sitting on a plow in the fields. 'I played at parties in the countries,' he said. 'I used to pick guitar, but I come to religion and I put the guitar down. I promised the Lord I wouldn't fool with a guitar no more, but I didn't promise Him I wouldn't fool with a harp. I always keep a harp' - George Mitchell, from In Celebration of a Legacy: The Traditional Arts of the Lower Chattahoochee Valley http://southernspaces.org/2004/blues-lower-chattahoochee-valley

Thanks so much for this information and your post, Wax.  That is really fascinating stuff and there is nothing like getting information from people who have had a working acquaintance with the equipment.  Thanks!
All best,
Johnm

It's fun to share this kind of stuff. Thanks, Johnm. I think you must have been viewing the post while I was still sorting out the pics. Two kept coming out upside down.
