Carlos del Junco and The Blues Mongrels
2017 SPAH (U.S.A. Society for the Preservation & Advancement of the Harmonica) Bernie Bray Harmonica Payer of The Year Award nomination
2016 Maple Leaf Blues Nomination for Best Harmonica Player and Best Acoustic Duo (with Jimmy Bowskill for Blues Etc...)
2010 JUNO NOMINATION for STEADY MOVIN' cd (JUNO is Canada’s equivalent of a Grammy)
Harmonica Player of the Year - EIGHT times Canadian Maple Blues Awards
2005 "Best Blues" Award - NOW Magazine, Toronto, ON
1998 JUNO NOMINATION for BIG BOY cd
1996 Blues Musician of the Year Award - Jazz Report Magazine
1993 Hohner World Harmonica Championship, Trossingen, Germany - Two Gold Medals in both diatonic blues and diatonic jazz

Neil Young and Bob Dylan can probably roll with it when he says they are very mediocre harmonica players. Aspiring harmonica players Wyatt Earp and Billy the Kid might have overreacted and pulled out their pistols... yes, this guy is good
