Watch Tim Kaine Play Harmonica on Campaign Trail

Tim Kaine is a lawyer, a senator from Virginia, Hillary Clinton's running mate and an extravagant harmonica player.

The 58-year-old, who Jezebel has called "your dad," played with a bluegrass band at Catawba Brewery in Asheville, North Carolina on Monday night.

He performed the legendary (and challenging) song "Wagon Wheel."

This shouldn't be a surprise because he told told CNN that he has "six harmonicas in my briefcase at all times."

Politico reports that during the jam session, Kaine's wife Anne Holton "clogged to the side of the stage."

He's not the only politician with a knack for a musical instrument.

Mike Huckabee loves to play the bass guitar, and of course, Bill Clinton is a saxophone legend.

Kaine told CNN he was nervous to get on stage, but he's happy he took the chance and got out of his comfort zone.
