Thread Name: Sam Hinton harmonica lessons
Subject: RE: Sam Hinton harmonica lessons
We have known Sam for about thirty years and have had the distinct privilige of sharing the stage with him several times. If anything, Art and Deckman have understated his talent. He knows more about folk music than anyone in this part of the galaxy and is the consummate performer. Much of our repertoire was learned from Sam and watching him didn't do us any harm either. He's always been more than willing to share his music with anyone.

What Deckman had to say about his children's programs is definitely true. We did programs in schools for 25 years and hardly ever got a gig within 50 miles of his house. We simply could not compete with him.

His harmonica playing is not to be believed. He can do things with that instrument that were previously thought to be impossible. Don't miss this CD.
