Gary Green -- Growing up in New Hampshire, Gary Green took up the harmonica in high school and was soon playing 20 nights a month around New England. “You learn your instrument quickly when you have to be so focused,” he says. He moved to Virginia in the early 1980s, and has since made it home. Gary Green was a winner at the 1987 Hohner National Harmonica Championships and The 1987 World Harmonica Championships Isle of Jersey (GB).
This concert is free to registered conference participants but admission to each concert is offered to others for $20 in advance or $25 at the door the night of the concert.
