Rossco Blues

Rossco is a dedicated harmonica player who is passionate about 'The Blues'. He began playing Blues and Folk, around the clubs and pubs in the 60's, with a number of different bands, where he gained a love of playing all styles of music on the harmonica. He enjoys entertaining audiences with his beautifully crafted harmonica music and exploring styles and improvisations.


Many different musicians have influenced my harmonica playing including Early Country Blue, Chicago Blues & Early British Harmonica players as well as Modern Day Harmonica players. To find out more visit the Influences Page and Blues Harp Gallery which include some legendary Harmonica players.

Harmonica Gear

Harmonica players use a number of harmonicas for different keys, techniques and music styles and preferences for makes of harmonica tend to vary. I have put together some details of harmonicas I use as well as Mics and Amps on the Harp Gear Page.



Rossco plays with Mississippi MacDonald & The Cotton Mouth Kings, who perform traditional Blues including original songs. The band play at venues in London & South East and are available for gigs.
