“Carlos is one of those players whose music is so advanced that when it comes to awards, it’s either retire the category or rephrase the question to ‘Best Harmonica Player Not Named Carlos’ ” (Dugg Simpson, past Artistic Director Vancouver Folks festival).

More details about Carlos del Junco
To say he plays the harmonica is like saying “Jimi Hendrix plays guitar”. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every colour in the musical rainbow right there in his hands.
Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”, they could just as well be called “The Jazz Mongrels”). The emphasis is on blues, but they are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, jazz swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.
