SYNOPSIS

The people’s instrument. The little ten-hole diatonic harmonica is an instrument that you can hide in your pocket and play on a mountain top, in a jail cell – or on a space shuttle. Originally used as a polka instrument in Germany, the harmonica quickly immigrated to the United States and inspired genius. It’s no toy. For proof, witness Little Walter Jacob, James Cotton, Jerry Murad and the Harmonicats, John Popper, Kim Wilson, and an amazing kid named Jason Ricci, and just about anybody who ever blew the house down with a “harp.” Narrated by Huey Lewis.
