FREE! Corte Madera Summer Concerts: Big Harp George

Big Harp George plays 21st century west coast blues, free concert in the park

Big Harp George/George Bisharat is a San Francisco Bay Area blues singer, songwriter and harmonica player who features the chromatic harmonica. George counts George “Harmonica” Smith, William Clarke, and Paul deLay as major influences on his chromatic playing. The chromatic (compared to the ten-hole diatonic more common to blues) has a distinctive voice, and lends Big Harp George’s sound a jazzy, contemporary, and sophisticated feel. He was selected as one of fifteen “rising stars” by Living Blues Magazine in the August 2014 harmonica issue. His 2014 debut release Chromaticism earned “Best New Artist” award nominations from the Blues Foundation and Blues Blast Magazine and high praise from blues music critics. Upon his second album release (Wash My Horse in Champagne) in 2016, George was nominated for the Sean Costello Rising Star Award by Blues Blast Magazine. http://www.bigharpgeorge.com/
