Simon Zhang is almost the most famous Chinese local blues harp player. He is well known as BlueSimon by the Chinese harp players on the internet.

Simon once was a professional bassist, he has terrific music feeling. His playing style is delicate. It seems that a simple note he played or the sound of his breath will touch the soul of the audience easily.

Blues, Pop music, Jazz, Country, folks, he interested in a wide range. It is worth mentioning that some of his try of playing Chinese traditional folk music with ten-hole blues harp not only surprised the other blues harp players but also won the praise of the composer and the original player. Click to listen to this 'Soul of Qin'.

Simon is also a good harp teacher, although few guys have the chance to take a face-to-face lesson  for his busy work as a government official, more beginners get benefits from the teaching video clips made by Simon.
