Still tracking great on the Root Music Report for Roots and Blues.
Nice quote from “Blues Matters!” UK’s Leading Blues Magazine “…he [Platt] is very brave in tackling the 1930’s classic Over The Rainbow, virtually playing solo with just a small dose of piano … technically his most accomplished playing on the album. Read full Review at Blues Matters! – Issue 83

Manfred has long been a true harmonica historian so it was very much […]
“Roly, your harmonica playing, it is outstanding! Simply amazing. You are a wonderful musician. Thank you for your beautiful contribution to our film.”
“Roly is one of Canada’s best harmonica players! Any style!”
“Roly is my first go to guy on harmonica. While being great at blues, he is also capable of much more. Melodies, accompaniments etc. I highly recommend him.”

“When it comes to harmonica I don’t use anybody else, period!”
“I have worked with Roly Platt for over 30 years in many different musical situations. He is a first class musician and a first class human being. He’s worked for me on a wide variety of recordings (records, jingles, tv shows) and is always an inspiration and a positive influence on whatever project he’s involved with.
