I watched the US vs Mexico women's soccer match earlier today. A 96 yr old WW2 veteran performed the National Anthem with his harmonica, no accompaniment. That solo was a moving rendition and appropriate for this weekend. He did a fantastic job!

I wished I'd seen and heard that one. I used to play the harmonica, not and expert but people could recognize the songs. They can be a very lonely sounding instrument. I think I'll have to get me another Hohner Marine Band harp, be fun to see if I can still play one.

I googled soccer harmonica anthem. Or something similar. It was not hard to find multiple short clips then found a complete one. It was well done. He is a treasure.
