The big heart of Bull Harman

Bull HarmanAnyone who knows flatpicker and guitar workshop impresario Bull Harman knows him as among the most gregarious, warm-hearted people in our business. Always quick with a smile – and just as swift with a fiery lick – Bull is a naturally friendly “people person” who, along with his wife Tammy, has performed for many years with Bull Harman & Bulls Eye and hosts the annual St Louis Flatpick workshop weekend each spring.

We heard from Tammy earlier this week with the shocking news that Bull had suffered a heart attack this past weekend. Tammy rushed him to the hospital in the wee hours of Sunday morning to discover that he had major blockage in two arteries. Tammy said that Bull was in intense pain, but after stents were placed in the arteries and he got some rest, he was doing much better.

Bull is now back at home resting in bed, and he is expected to be fit as a gitfiddle shortly.

Any of his many friends who would like to share get well wishes can send them to:
