Interview with Leo Clarke and Larry Bloomfield at legendary TAFFYs

TAFFYs caught up with multiple Blues Award Winner Leo Clarke and absolutely fantastic Blues harmonica player Larry Bloomfield before their gig at legendary TAFFYs on Saturday 15 – 2015.

They talk about  their music career, offer advice to young music artists and much more!

 

Local harmonica legend, Larry Bloomfield has played harmonica around Cincinnati since the early 1980s, with Big Joe Duskin, Keith Little, the High Street Rhythm Rockers, Dick and the Roadmasters, Bluesbent, and Todd Hepburn, to name just a few. Larry and Jim were both in the Last Minute Blues Band in the late 80s, and Larry played with Jim and Donna in Moxie & The Matchboys in 1990. A fan in Poland heard The Moxie Band on the Internet, and asked for a cd autographed by Larry.
