- BUSHMAN HARMONIKY
The Bushman brand was created in January, 1996 by John Hall. John’s love for the harmonica started when he was 5 years old and his grandpa gave him one. A music loving family made it easy to stick with the instrument allowing him to play it at church and family reunions. On a summer’s evening in 1990, he walked by the Slippery Noodle in Indianapolis and heard a harmonica player wailing the blues, and it was love at first sound! His ever growing love of music fueled his enthusiasm for the business, and led him to found the Bean Blossom Blues Fest in 1999. Hall ran the festival for 15 years which gave him the rich experience of working with the best harmonica players in the world. This experience shaped the destiny of Bushman Harmonicas – he learned what harmonica players wanted and needed out of their instruments.
The Soul’s Voice was the first Bushman harmonica. Launched In April 2000 the Soul’s Voice was a good quality harmonica made in Klingenthal, Germany and it helped put Bushman on the map as a trusted harmonica brand.
