Tuesday 13th August. Ben is heading for SPAH.org; the 50th anniversary. The Society for the Preservation and Advancement of the Harmonica is the main US harmonica organisation and this is their festival. Leaving Heathrow midday and arriving later in St.Louis.
He’s hoping to learn lots of new things, try some new styles of music, meet some new people, meet some famous attendees like Charlie McCoy, John Sebastian, and Madcat Ruth.
He is presenting a seminar and doing three workshops on ‘going with the grain of the harmonica’
So St Louis via Chicago is the plan with a trip to Memphis afterwards to see Elvis if he’s in.
