The Passing of a Blues Legend...

Gary Primich was an amazing blues singer and harmonica player.  A native of the midwest, he began playing the harmonica as a child and mastered playing the blues in Chicago before moving to Austin, Texas, where his recording career took off.

Whether playing with his own band or in gigs with other musicians, Gary's talent and down to earth nature always shown through in his music.

Sadly, Gary passed away in 2007, at the early age of 49.  He is missed.

A friend loaned me this CD and Gary was one of the great harp players featured on it. His sound hooked me from the start and he quickly became one of my favorite harp players.

      I also saw him play a lot in Austin. He always put on a great show. I really dig the blues.

      I just browsed your highly interesting collection of lenses and noticed this great memorial to a great blues man. At one point, many years ago, I pitched Gary's music to my old record company in Munich, Germany (they weren't ready for it, though). As a fellow Austinite (from Austin, TX) I had many chances to listen to his soulful playing. He was a wonderful man.

      Thanks for honoring Gary with your lens. -Chef Keem
