Dead, Harry Pitch was an English harmonica player, musician, he was born on the 9th of May 1925 and died on the 15th of July 2015.
The harmonica has often been regarded as a novelty instrument, but it became highly prized in British pop music following the success of Frank Ifield’s 1962 recording of I Remember You.
The memorable harmonica phrase was performed by Harry Pitch, who has died aged 90.
Pitch’s distinctive sound graced numerous pop records of the 1960s, as well as film music, commercials and even classical music concerts.
Probably the most widely recognised of his performances was the theme tune for the long-running television series Last of the Summer Wine.
