Hello Harmonica Lovers!
I’m going to be talking about a current female harmonica player that has over 2 Million views on social media her name is (Christelle Berthon.)
Women harmonica players have come a long way since the first recording featuring a female harmonica player in 1950. Now women harmonica players are on tour doing performances all over the world and teaching harmonica and of course a lot of exposure on social media like Facebook and YouTube.
This includes more than the USA there are a lot of women harmonica players from all around the World and with social media it’s easy to view their skills and talents on the harmonica.
All though most of the female harmonica players are Blues players there’s still a wide variety of other styles like folk, jazz, country, classical that you can view on a social media.
Born in France started playing the harmonica at age 24 formerly learning music at age 4 she studied Oboe in a music school in France but found it to be boring so she quit music for several years until a lady gave her a harmonica when she was older.
That’s all it took Christelle fell in love with the harmonica and because of her training of music at an early age she was successful at covering a big range of genres, Jazz, Celtic and Blues she’s also master the technique of overbending which allows you to play chromatically on a diatonic harmonica.
Christelle has played with Jean Jacques Milteau, Kenny Neal, Jason Ricci, Melody Gardot and Charlie Musselwhite. Christelle has over 2 Million views on the web. named the undisputed “Harmonica Queen of YouTube”
