Re: [Harp-L] Has "Dueling Banjos" ever been performed on harmonica?

I sat in with a band in a pub when I was on vacation in Scotland a couple years ago and we performed Dueling Banjos...The band was a fiddler, an acordian player, and me, chromatic harmonica....the people enjoyed it, a lot...we did some fun stuff with the tune as well...I never expected it, in Scotland? So, play on....
