Richard Sleigh and Brendan Power Chase a Fox

I subscribe to the Harp-L Mailing list and delight myself occasionally in delving through the harmonica talk to learn new things or hear great music.  Today I came across a guy by the name of Richard Sleigh who is an active contributor to the Harp-L community.  Turns out he is also a customization guru, a teacher, and a downright knowledgeable harp player!  After spending some time going through his website, I searched for him on YouTube and found some really nice music!  My favorite is this duet jam he plays with Brendan Power at a SPAH (Society for the Preservation and Advancement of Harmonica) convention in St. Louis.  He has a really nice, well-rounded sound and plays beautiful chords.  A joy to hear!  And together with Brendan Power, they make some excellent music!

As an aside, today I learned the name for the Fox Chase rhythm.  I never knew it had a name!  Now I want to learn it!
