When I was five or six I was introduced to singing harmony thru Christmas caroling. Mrs. Kappos next door would have us all begin practicing once a week the first week after Halloween right up till Christmas Eve and then we would sing to every house on the block, ending with a Christmas party for the carolers. I have been singing ever since.
In 3rd and 4th grade I was in the choir and in Bible school high tenor in a men’s quartet. Always loved singing harmonies. When our kids lived at home we’d go fetch our Christmas tree at a place half an hour away so we could sing Christmas carols in the car. My wife would bring songbooks and I would now my parts.
I also learned to play harmonica in college and discovered that you are really welcome nearly everywhere if you can sing harmonies or play the blues harp.. Thanks for the good story.
