Together, Al and Judy are internationally known as The Harmonica Hotshots, and have performed in many countries including England, France, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Greece as well as performing ten years on cruise ships. For more than thirty years, Al and Judy have conducted harmonica workshops at international harmonica conventions and other venues throughout the world. They have written dozens of books of harmonica instructions and harmonica ensemble arrangements. Read More...  See Al and Judy on YouTube
