Back to this year's Spring Festival

Another great Spring Festival in 2008.
This year we have: Giles King, resident UK harp player with Lightnin’ Willie and the Poor Boys; the well respected and talented chromatic player Gerry Ezzard; Paul Gillings, former World Diatonic Champion, who will be demonstrating to diatonic players what can be achieved on the chromatic; the ever popular Keith Parker, front man of Blues With a Feelin’, and an expert on amplification; Ben Hewlett, full time professional harmonica teacher; and Laurie Garman whose musical biography includes a three year stint with the legendary Yardbirds. All of these guys will be on hand to present workshops covering a wide range of topics, and to answer your questions and offer advice and guidance.
The trade stand will be provided courtesy of Steve and Joan Noon of Eagle Music, displaying their extensive range of harmonicas , related accessories, and other instruments.
After a short break , the evening concert and jam session will begin. Ricky Cool and his band will be there, with the talented and versatile Chris Collis on keyboards, to support the workshops, concert, and jammers.
All this for the princely sum £10.00 for NHL members , and £12.50 for non-members, including the evening concert. Non-members who join on the day will pay the reduced ticket price. If you wish to book in advance, send a cheque made out to the 'National Harmonica League' to:

How To Get There
The venue is best reached via the M42 up the A435. Avoid travelling through Birmingham city centre! Leave the M42 at junction 3 and take the A435 Alcester Rd, signposted Birmingham, and follow the signs for Kings Heath.
After about 5 miles look out for a big pub on the left called The Kings Arms. The entrance to the Cricket Club is approximately 150 yards past the pub on the right hand side of the road, opposite Livingston Rd. If you travel by public transport from
Birmingham city centre, take the number 50 bus from the stop opposite Moor Street railway station. The bus stops right outside the venue. The entrance is round the back by the cricket field.
How Much Does It Cost?
The tickets are £10 for members and £12.50 for non-members. This includes the evening concert.
Food will be available.
