Harmonica Master Mark Hummel appearing at Sellersville Theater


Grammy-nominated and blues award-winning harmonica player Mark Hummel brings his Blues Survivors to the Sellersville Theater, 24 W. Temple Ave., Sellersville, at 8 p.m. Sunday, May 28.

Joining Hummel will be Texas blues guitar great Anson Funderburgh.

Hummel took up an interest in blues harp and rock-blues music in high school. Soon he was digging deep, discovering the originators of the music he loved – Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Little Walter, just to name a few.

By the mid 80s, his band, The Blues Survivors, hit the road and never looked back…. Hummel has also been at the helm of his Blues Harmonica Blowout, now in its 32nd year.

This supergroup has presented a who’s who of harmonica virtuosos, including Charlie Musselwhite, Magic Dick, RJ Mischo, Rick Estrin, James Cotton, Lazy Lester, Billy Boy Arnold, James Harman, Jason Ricci, Sam Myers, and Bobby Rush.

Another one of Hummel’s projects is the Golden State Lone Star Revue, where he joined forces with Funderburgh.

In 1978, Funderburgh formed his band, The Rockets, with harmonica player and vocalist Darrell Nulisch, who left the group in 1986, and was replaced by Sam Myers. For 20 years The Rockets, along with Myers, toured continuously all over the world and went on to win 10 Blues Music Awards from the Blues Foundation in Memphis, Tenn.
