Re: [Harp-L] Other Brit Blues/Rock Harp?
and that gentleman (forgot his name, but an "L"'er did post it to my query a
few months ago) that plays harp/mandolin with Lindesfarne. He's the one that
played mandolin on "Maggie May".
In a message dated 11/24/2008 10:46:43 A.M. Eastern Standard Time,
Keith Relf and Cyril Davies have been mentioned. Davies was the undisputed
godfather of British harp and got a whole lot of us started on the slippery
Very much the first British exponent of amplified Chicago harp.
Plus there were:
Paul Jones with Manfred Mann - still playing excellently with The Blues Band.
Duster Bennett - superb player, led his own band consisting of himself on
harp, guitar, hi-hat symbol and bass drum. Died tragically young.
John Mayall of course
More occasional players were:
Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac fame... great guitarist and passable harp
Jack Bruce with Cream.
Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Roger Daltry and John Lennon... from time to time
and of variable standard.
And I'm sure a lot more who have drifted out of mind (mine not theirs...
although in some cases...!)
