Welcome to the only fanlisting listed at TheFanlistings.Org for the gorgeous wind instrument, the harmonica! The harmonica comes in a huge range of shapes and forms, with a consequently huge range of uses in many music genres including the blues, American folk, classical, most world music, and even modern forms such as electronica. Being a "fanlisting", this particular website aims to create an online list of harmonica fans from all across the world:
A fanlisting is a site that aims to unite worldwide fans of a particular subject by creating an online "list" of "fans" for that subject, according to the idea found at the original online fanlisting headquarters, TheFanlistings.Org.
I built this fanlisting for harmonicas because for me, they have a unique power in expressing rhythm - be it dynamic and natural rhythm, when eloquently expressing the strains of the human soul and voice, or be it more synthetic rhythm, such as imitating a chugging steam train sailing in the moonlight. Harmonicas are also incredible at complementing melodies in music, particularly with the guitar and/or a solo vocal. I also feel that the harmonica has the ability to extract a pervasive human power in every performance: wrapped in a musician's rugged hands and blown with tired and worn lips, every rhythm and melody the harmonica conjoins with seems to be a product of human energy and exhaustive emotional expression - trains, tears, toils and troubles. For these reasons, the mood it produces is a unique, jumping balance between profoundly spiritual and provoking, and recklessly light-hearted.
So! If you are also a fan of harmonicas, then the "fanlisting" concept is that you can join the fanlisting for free (this website is a voluntary fan effort), and become part of a growing, worldwide list of harmonica fans! Website navigation can be found above, below the main header graphic. You can also refer to the site map if you’re confused about how to navigate around this website.

This site and all rendered graphics have been created by me, Raine, and is hosted at my collective RevolutionBlues.Org. It is also listed at TheFanlistings.Org, the original base of fanlistings. This site makes no profit, nor is it a newsletter subscription or official service: it simply aims to list fans of harmonicas.
