Local harmonica player Ansel Barnum and guitar player Jason Hahn took their imaginative instrumental folk to the studios of Kettle Pot Tracks for an On the Hill session.  The Philadelphia Folk Festival alums played five tracks ranging in style from contemplative and slow-burning (“Berkely Springs” and “I Wish I Could Sing…” ) to inspiring and eye-opening (“Surreal Moments”).  In addition to playing in a few local bands, Barnum is a volunteer for Musicians on Call where he plays harmonica for children at St. Christopher’s Hospital in North Philadelphia.  Learn more about Musicians on Call here and listen to the session below, accompanied by a video of the duo performing “Surreal Moments.”
