Quebecois harmonica

Ray Lambert, just self-published an illustrated book he wrote with another musician about Quebec folk tunes including notations and music score to play them on the harmonica.
Ray is a bi-lingual Franco American from Lewiston, (now lives in Mariaville near Ellsworth) who wrote the book in both English and French in collaboration with a musician from France who also loves Quebec tunes and the harmonica.
We have heard Ray play a concert of this music on the harmonica, and with his ability to bend the notes accompanied by his feet stamping percussion, you think you are hearing a fiddler playing the old tunes. In a performance setting he plays with a guitarist.
