Pete Lancaster taught himself to play the harmonica - hands free - while commuting an hour to his accounting job in Ohio in the late 1980s. Then he taught himself to play the guitar, harmonica and a stompin' box that contained a tambourine - all at the same time. It took two weeks to learn one song, but after that it was easy, says Lancaster, who has become well-known among Hagerstown-area musicians and fans for his one-man act and for performances with local blues bands. This Friday night at the Western Maryland Blues Fest, Lancaster will show off his ability to play all three instruments at once with 2Blue Ensemble.
