DEAK HARP :: BIO
Deak Harp
Deak started playing harmonica at age 12 when he heard a schoolmate playing blues on a harmonica. Deak listened to British blues untill his brother Bob told him about a harp master named James Cotton. In 1993 Deak had the good fortune and opportunity to drive for the James Cotton Band, from Chicago to Miami, Florida and back. Deak later drove for the James Cotton special acoustic trio featuring James Cotton, Dave Maxwell and Luther Tucker. On the tours Deak learned directly from Cotton, who helped him with his tone on the harp and taught him how to be a band leader. Deak's solo show features Deak accompanying his harp with his 'stompbox', providing his own percussion!
