SlideMeister Featured Artist - October 2012
Charles Spranklin has, for reasons totally unknown to me, managed to stay almost completely under the radar for too many years. Perhaps he doesn't like the attention or recognition for that matter, but here at SlideMeister Central, we have no intention of letting him get away with that any longer. One of the nicest guys you'll ever meet as well as a monster player. That's quite a combination!
Most of us read and enjoy his articles and stories in Harmonica Happenings Magazine a few times a year, but I, like a lot of folks, just love to listen to this man play! I refer to him as "Mr. Mellow" or "Sir Charles" (or when he 's not in the room: "Charlie" - not to his face cuz he's bigger than I am ;o) This guy has a mellow sound "that bleach can't reach." No one even comes close. Below is a YouTube of Sir Charles playing an amazing, moving version of the old classic: "Silent Night" Enjoy!
