Beginners Join us on a journey of discovery from opening the box, learning key skills and repertoire, all the way to your first bends. Our workshops are led by Ed Hopwood. Beginners will need a 10 hole harmonica in the key of C. These are available to purchase on the day. Full information on the event website. The Beginners schedule runs throughout the day.
Intermediates / Advanced This year’s workshops are geared towards improving performance skills and confidence. Eddie Martin will share his extensive performance experience, both as a front man and a solo guitar/rack-harmonica specialist. Marta Suñé will share her highly acclaimed blues harmonica skills and performance knowledge. The harmonica content will be tailored to the two respective ability levels. After lunch, players can join John Cook for his technical workshop, or Vanessa Thomas and Richard Taylor to combine vocals and harmonica playing.
