Harmonica for Kids with Andy Wilson
Saturday, Sept 20, 2014 – 2:00 to 3:00 pm
MICA Stage

Back by popular demand: the Harmonica for Kids workshop, presented by harmonica pro Andy Wilson! Kids, come learn how to play the harmonica. Free harmonicas will be provided for the first 100 participants, thanks to the sponsorship of Capital Area Blues Society.

Andy Wilson, co-founder of the Lansing old-time country, swing and blues quartet Steppin’ In It, started playing harmonica at a young age, and learned on his father’s Conn Constellation trumpet well enough to play it in his high school jazz band. He’s also an expert at playing Cajun accordian and Irish whistles. He works in CABS’ “Blues in Schools” program, and received national recognition as a featured performer at the 2007 Society for the Preservation and Advancement of the Harmonica convention.  In addition to Steppin’ In It, he is a long-time member of Those Delta Rhythm Kings and The Bad Gravy Blues Band, and in more recent years, of Springtails and The Lash. He also hosts the Sunday night blues jam at the Green Door in Lansing.
