Harmonica Workshop
Start Date: 14 February 2019
Start Time: 12pm - 3.30pm
End Date: 11 May 2019

1 Charter Square St, Bury Saint Edmunds IP33 3FD

Harmonica phenomenon Steve Lockwood has joined forces with The Apex to put on a workshop for harmonica players of all abilities to improve their blues and pop playing and get the best out of this deceptively humble instrument.


Steve isn't just a musician with a world wide reputation, who has played with acts from Larry Adler, Chris Difford (Squeeze) and Screaming Lord Sutch to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and recorded over 80 albums. He's also got a degree in harmonica playing from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge and is a fully qualified teacher and lecturer with a PGCE.

Workshop participants will play new blues rhythms, cool country wails, pitch bend all the way down and jam along with well-known solos. Steve will introduce pop/rock, folk and blues material and cover basic and intermediate techniques for the harmonica. Every workshop is different with new material and no need to read music notation for those who can’t read.

Dates: Saturday 9th February 2019, Saturday 9th March 2019, Saturday 20th April 2019, Saturday 11th May 2019.
Tickets: £35 (harmonicas available for purchase on the day: £8).

This event is promoted by Steve Lockwood.
