NHL - Diary of World Harmonica Events, Meetings and Contests.
The NHL runs a range of events including an Annual Festival and the AGM, usually held in Bristol in October: special events for blues players (see below) and a Chromatic Weekend event for chromatic harmonicas players. Some local area events are organised and run by NHL members. They are more informal events with an emphasis on playing, local networking and an exchange of information and help. If you would like to organise one please contact us.
