For all of its hundreds of versions out there, it continually amazes me how folks can keep freshening up a nearly 70-year-old “Route 66.”
This time, Mike Shaw does it with an acoustic guitar and adept harmonica playing with Bobby Troup’s immortal road-trip tune. The video was shot by Mike Gaboark.
And check out what Shaw does with a varying sizes of harmonicas. Don’t try this at home, kids.
I couldn’t find a link for Shaw. So, if you know where it is, please chime in with the comments.
