aboutME

I am a blues harmonica player based in Gloucestershire, England. I'm available as a session musician for studio and band work.

I have won the National Harmonica League Player of the Year, and I front The Liam Ward Band as well as playing with The Jake Leg Jug Band, Mark Cole, Malcolm Thorne and Benjamin Bassford among others.

 

I'm a blues specialist and also love playing rock, pop, country, jazz and more. I've appeared and recorded in Europe and North America.



I also run an online harmonica school at https://www.learntheharmonica.com, and I teach masterclasses and write content for magazines including Blues Matters, Harmonica World and Blues in Britain.
