>Ben Franklin’s … music


Ben Franklin played the armonica this person is dressed as him and also playing a armonica it is pretty cool sounding.  Oh he, Benjamin Franklin, also invented it. It is glass bowls mounted side ways the clear ones are like white keys on a key board and the gold ones are like black keys thus your are able to play cords more like an overall instrument than water glasses.  It is attached to a fly wheel that spins by use of a treadle just like an old sewing machine.  Pretty cool to me anyway. Look what kids doing their homework teaches the parents.
