    I wrote to Parga Music and asked about the harmonica concerto which was
    mentioned in earlier posts. Here is the (paper mail) reply I received in

    Just a note for clarification. John Sebastion was a world renowned
    classical harmonicist. He passed away a number of years ago. He was the
    father of the John Sebastian we know from his harmonica work on the TV
    series "Welcome Back Kotter" and the group, "Lovin' Spoonful". He recently
    came out with a blues harp instructional video (from Homespun Tapes).

    I have not yet ordered the concerto but plan to. I could probably never
    play it, but may tackle parts of it. - 20 bucks seems very reasonable.
