Lil Rev's / Harmonica Americana CD
I am grateful for your time and support.
This crowd-sourced-fund-raising venture represents a really exciting time for me as a harmoncia player and artist.
It has been over 20 years since i produced my last harmonica record (Mouth Organ Minstrel). As the years have rolled on by, it has always been my dream to produce a double album with one CD devoted to Celtic & American Stringband Music and a companion CD with Blues and Solo Harp Styles. A smorgasbord of music, from dance tunes, to ballads, blues and beyond.
The canon of Harmonica Americana is rich and deep and i have spent much of my career passionately minning these treasures.
Now it is time to share these lost old gems with the world via a double CD titled: Harmonica Americana.
I plan to enlist the best musicians in Milwaukee to support this effort which we'll record at the legendary Surround Sound Studios
and begin recording in late June with a target release date of late summer.

If you are reading this page, chances are you have heard me play harmonica some where along the way and hopefully have found some joy therein. If this is so, i am hopeful that you might consider supporting this project and it is with the utmost thankfulness that i tip my hat to you for your consideration.
Hope the September Harvest has been good to you!
Here at Lil Rev Central, the new Harmonica Americana project is starting to receive some world class reviews from local, national and international players and press.
I am humbled and grateful for all of your support in the making of this monumental harmonica project.
I am pleased that you enjoying this great old time music!
A small group of you haven't received your CDS yet, i assure you they will go in the mail later this week.
We ran out of stickers (which we promised to include in the package and have been waiting for them to arrive.
I spoke with the printer today and he says they ship this week.
I will keep you all posted as the PR rolls along.
I plan to close the Harmonica Americana correspondence by Nov. 1st.
Until then, stay in touch and i look forward to seeing you this fall and winter as i hit the road in support of my new album.
This is an update on the status of The Harmonica Americana CD project. At present we sent out 60 CDS last week, 40 this week and the remainder of them will go out late next week when our bumper stickers supply has returned from the printer.
Many of you who received your CDS are writing to tell me how much you love the collection and i am heartened to hear that from you. Most of the music is reinterpetation of old harmonica classics and i am delighted to hear your enthusiasm for this collection.
If you haven't yet received your copy in the mail, don't worry, its on its way (either in this weeks shipment or late next).
Again, i thank you for all of your support,
I am harp-fully, grateful,
