Re: [Harp-L] The Bernie Bray Harmonica Player of the Year Award

I believe that Don Les won the Bernie Bray award due to the fact he was an excellent bass harmonica player who was a member of the worlds most popular harmonica trio.
His diatonic harmonica playing was amazing, and he was also was outrageously great at playing the 4 hole Little Lady, but both of those endeavors were considered novelties at that time.
