John Popper Appears In Skit With Tim Kaine On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’


Soon after being tapped to join Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s ticket, Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kainea noted harmonica player – was invited to “duel” with acclaimed harmonica master and Blues Traveler frontman John Popper.
