Victor will be appearing at HBTS 2021 on Friday 5th Feb at 17.30 (UK time). His presentation focus on insights into the harmonica style of Gary Primich.
Victor “Doors” Puertas was born on Sonny Terry’s birthday (October 24th), is a powerful harmonica player from Barcelona (Spain), who also plays piano, Hammond organ and guitar. Nevertheless, harmonicas are his love at the first feel, and he plays them with deep emotion and sensibility. He is one of the top five favourites in Jerry Portnoy’s list.
Victor has shared moments with great blues players such as Gary Primich, Mark Hummel, Jerry Portnoy, Joe Filisko, Eric Noden, Nathan James, Paul Rishell, Annie Raines, Steve James, Fred Kaplan, among others. He has worked as a session musician on several soundtracks, as a special guest in dozens of albums and played hundreds of shows. In addition, he teaches in his hometown, Barcelona.
