Terry Harmonica Bean

CDbaby
Bean first heard downhome blues at home. His father Eddie Bean, a native of Bruce, sang and played blues guitar and prior to Terry’s birth traveled with an electric blues band.
For many years Eddie Bean, who died in 1985, hosted informal music and gambling gatherings at the family’s house on 'Bean Hill' in west Pontotoc. He also worked as a sharecropper, enlisting Terry and other of his fourteen children to pick cotton in the surrounding fields.
