ROANOKE, Va (WFXR) — April 18th is National Harmonica Day! It’s unclear who truly created the wind instrument, but it is used in all different music genres, like blues, jazz, and American folk.

 Professor George Miklas, p.h.d. of the University of Lynchburg joined WFXR News on “Good Day Virginia” to celebrate, discuss and demonstrate the importance of the harmonica.
