New video: Henry Heggen - HOHNER Harmonica Sessions

03.01.2012

Excellent harmonica sound, great blues voice and a lot of fresh charm- the audience appreciates Henry Heggen for many years.
He was born in 1955 in Florida, but quickly moved to Europe where he got to know Chris Turner who taught him playing the harmonica.
In 1976, he moved to Germany with his jug band "Have Mercy" where he immediately formed his own band "B. Sharp". He was succesful in Germany and even rocked with Joe Cocker.
Today he's a part of the blues scene in Hamburg. Henry already played with Abi Wallenstein, Axel Zwingenberg and Vince Weber or Inga Rumpf who all appreciate the high quality of playing and especially in a human way.
At the moment Heggen plays in the band "Crazy Hambones"  and won the "Jazz and Blues Award" in 2009.
