Originally a guitarist, Salt Lake City, Utah native Tony Holiday didn't pick up a harmonica until age 29, at the encouragement of John Németh. Years later, Németh's influence inspired Holiday to relocate to the heart of musical magic and join him as a resident of Memphis, Tennessee. Ironically, that discussion took place at none other than Németh's front porch, adding to the reasons that front porches are especially significant for Tony Holiday. Not only does he enjoy the cozy informality of making music on them, he's done some outstanding recording on those porches too.
Studios simply aren't a necessity for the blues harmonica wailer when he's ready to lay some sounds down for posterity. He just meets his friends on their front porches, sets up his portable recording equipment, and gets down to business without the constraints of being inside a professional studio environment. And he has some pretty impressive friends, too.
'Alan Lomax was a big inspiration of mine,' says Tony. 'I grew up on bluegrass music. I grew up with a lot of porch pickers. When I heard that story of Buddy Guy taking a piece of wire out of a screen door and nailing it to the porch and plucking on it, that was his first little idea to play music. And I realized, 'Wow, the blues is really back on the porch too!' The porch is kind of the place where families used to go to cool off at the end of the day, get to know each other, play music together.'
