Cross harp is reference to the first known harmonica that was sat on by an infamous blues man from way down south. Its recorded that is was an accident but the harp didn't see it that way it was really "cross" with that clumsy blues man. It shouted: "You gone done it now, I ain't never gonna sound the same again" And the harp was right. From then on the Blues man never played the harp in the key it was designed for, instead he played it in "Cross-harp".
There is more information on cross harp on this wonderful site, check it out.
