Michael Peloquin began his musical journey playing the harmonica. Equally adept on the diatonic and chromatic versions of “People’s Instrument”, he is known for his melodic, horn-inspired and rhythmic style. Always being unaware of any perceived limits of the humble harmonica helped Michael to bring home the gold medal in the Hohner Harmonica World Championship in Germany in 1997. He has numerous credits on recordings, film and television. His entire musical vision has its roots in joy of breathing life into the harmonica.
