Many thanks to all for your good wishes and support during our 20th Anniversary year. It’s inspired us to take a shot at another 20 years ….one year at a time.

Here’s our final release of 2017: Hardcore Harp a Celebration of 20 Years of Blues Harmonica Masters on Electro-Fi Records.

 


“Amazing Stuff….this is an album of brilliant Blues Harmonica playing”.
- Blues Matters.

Featuring some of the very best of today’s Blues Harmonica Artists: Mark Hummel, James Harman, Paul Oscher, Harmonica Shah and Billy Boy Arnold. Along with Harp Masters of the 20th Century: Snooky Pryor, George “Harmonica” Smith, Sam Myers, Little Mack Simmons, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith and more.

The release of this album was a wonderful way to celebrate the 75th birthday of Juno Award winner Harrison Kennedy and the 20th Anniversary of Electro-Fi. Harry had a mighty busy year, performing constantly, including 3 tours of France, as well as a show stopping performance at the Canmore Folk Festival in Alberta. “Who U Tellin’ hit # 1 on the Roots Music Report: Canada Top 50 Chart back in May, and 8 months later is still on the chart. Watch for a new release from Harrison on Electro-Fi in 2018.

HIDDEN TREASURE from our back Catalogue:

BILLY BOY ARNOLD
Exactly 10 years ago, November 1 & 2, 2007 we brought Chicago Blues legend
Billy Boy Arnold into the studio to record an album he’d long dreamed of doing.
A tribute to his mentor John Lee “Sonny Boy” Williamson, we assembled an all-star Band comprised of Mel Brown, guitar and piano, Billy Flynn, guitar and mandolin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, drums and Bob Stroger, bass. Produced by Alec Fraser and Andrew Galloway, the sessions yielded 17 tracks featuring 15 Sonny Boy classics and 2 Billy Boy Arnold originals. Billy Boy’s vocal and harmonica work on this album are exceptional Chicago Blues. If you missed it on the first go ‘round check it now out here
