Harmonica players, harmonica fans, harmonica graybeards and newbies, come to the Freight for the Bay Area Harmonica Convergence, featuring Eugene Huggins, Phil Berkowitz, Dave Matthews & an all-star jam!
“You won't find a more devoted bluesman than Marin’s Eugene Huggins, an unassuming harmonica ace who remains relatively unknown even though he’s played with the likes of Tom Waits, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and James Cotton,” says the Marin Independent Journal. When he was 15, Eugene sneaked into a club in San Rafael to see Muddy Waters and Big Mama Thornton, and he’s been smitten with the blues ever since. Over the past few decades, he’s led two bands, The Casuals, and Eugene and the Bluejeans. According to Sausalito Night Life, he “played every major party in Sausalito for about twenty years.” Phil Berkowitz picked up a harmonica in college and hasn’t stopped playing. Okay, he’s literally stopped – but he still plays every chance he gets, and he loves to introduce people to the joys and satisfactions, the language and the lore of the gloriously humble harmonica. Dave Matthews of El Cerrito has led the Dave Matthews Blues Band since 2002 and teaches harmonica at the Freight. Come on out for an evening of converging harmonicas. May the blues be with you!
