Blues harp in modern classical music?

Are there any good examples of contemporary "classical"/art music featuring the diatonic blues harp?

I have found few works scored for chromatic harmonica, like Villa-Lobos's concerto, but these don't interest me as much. I'm more interested in composers who have engaged with traditional blues harp sounds and techniques, the way composers from Country X will often write a "Concerto for Traditional Folk Instrument of Country X and Orchestra."
