My Uncle...Paul Harrington...Famous Harmonica Player/Musician My Uncle...Paul Harrington...Famous Harmonica Player/Musician

There are famous people all over the world as you know.  You might even be related to them.  Perhaps your last name is Bradshaw or Toms.  Mine is just plain old Haynes.  Our family has been relatively unfamous until just recently.

My uncle, Paul Harrington, a studio musician for years and a fine harmonica player all of a sudden has a huge part in a hit song called "Timber" by Pitbull and Ke$sha.  In other words, his harmonica playing makes up most of the three and a half minute song!

Here's the link to the story from the Dallas Morning News:  Local harmonica man Paul Harrington is the unlikely star of Pitbull and Ke$ha's "Timber".

Congrats Paul!
