Lexington, KY


With one hand on the keyboard and the other playing his trumpet, Harley Cannon brings a unique variety, some would say a one-man-band, anywhere he plays and sings. Blind virtually from birth, he grew up in Maryland where he took to music at an early age. For over 30 years he’s made music in Lexington , Kentucky . He plays at private parties, restaurants, weddings, churches, and special events. He also writes poetry. He is a member of Toastmasters and does public speaking: motivational and on blindness awareness issues. He enjoys encouraging others and spreading the joy of life wherever he goes.
