Gary GreenGrowing up in New Hampshire, Gary Green took up the harmonica in high school and was soon playing 20 nights a month around New England. “You learn your instrument quickly when you have to be so focused,” he says. He moved to Virginia in the early 1980s, and has since made it home.

Gary Green was a winner at the 1987 Hohner National Harmonica Championships and The 1987 World Harmonica Championships Isle of Jersey (GB). Gary continues to perform and/or record with songwriters Peyton Tochterman, Terri Allard, Scott Kirby, and country soul artist Cleve Francis.

He has performed on major stages around the country including Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry, Washington DC's Birchmere, Passims in Boston, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, NY's Falcon Ridge Festival, Folks Fest in Lyons Co., Norfolk Scope, Paramount theater, Charlottesville, VA as well as venues from NYC to Austin to Key West Florida.
