Meet The Artist: Jim McClaren
Come to the National Blues Museum gift shop between 1 and 3 p.m. to meet blues musician Jim McClaren! For 23 years Jim McClaren played harmoica as a member of the Soulard Blues Band. He has since either formed or played with several groups in the area, including the Baker-McClaren Band, the St. Louis Social Club, and Ribtip & Rogers.
His retired harmonics (over 800) have been added to the National Blues Museum in St. Louis. Jim was the first person to perform at the grand reopening of the Peabody Opera House.
