About


The Dutchman Harp Mitch is one of the harpplayers who's life remains the old blues from the fifties of the last century, with his harmonica and voice. Both literally and figuratively.

With his typical huge sound and appearance, he`s not holding the names of before, such as:
Little Walter, George "Harmonica" Smith and William Clarke,
but also many large contemporary "Harpplayers" such as:
Rod Piazza, Rick Estrin, Mitch Kashmar, RJ Mischo and many others.
He knows how to mix those influences at his own sound and groove.
Don't forget the songs from his own pencil such as: One More Time, I really do my best, Little Boys Talk, Deep Brown...
Harp Mitch is distinguished by the authentic way of approaching
"Old School Blues".

During my harmonica journey, which I'm still on.
I'm getting the support of many people.
In particular I wanna give my thanks to :

My Family
My Wife and Son . They given me the power and support to get on.....I love them so much.

My good Friend and Mentor
Gerrit Ekkelenkamp from the Netherlands. He is the one who shares
his almost 40 years experiences of the Harmonica and the Equipment with me.

My Brother in Harp
Martin Liening from Germany. He is the person who showed me the first steps
on the harmonica and put me in the world of Westcoast Blues..

My Harmonicacustomizer
Ron van Hal from the Netherlands. He is the person that prepares
my harmonicas. So I can play much comfortable as possible.
