Improving my harmonica skills

I have been playing the harmonica for 40 yrs. Mostly for my own entertainment. I play basic old country and religious music. I would like to improve my skills and learn different music including Irish folk music, popular American music from 20 to 40 years ago. I don’t read music and am ols enough I am not sure I want to. How do you recomend that I get better. Also which cd would you recomend to learn what bending sounds like and how to do it? Thanks

Hey Tumblereed, you said you play gospel tunes?
Do you know an old tune, “I Am Determined (To Hold Out To The End?”
That was Grandpa’s tune.
