Also known as “Harpageddon,” this is the coolest all-harmonica ensemble in town! Echoing the old Cambridge Harmonica Orchestra, we learn group arrangements, lead and rhythm parts to favorite blues, jazz, rock and soul songs. It’s a mixed-level repertoire class where you pick up technique along the way, recommended for anyone from Advanced Beginners on up to professional show-offs.

At the end of the session the class will have a chance to perform together at a recital or open mic. This is a great opportunity to get more stage time and more learning experience as well.

Songs covered in past sessions include:

  Walkin’ Blues
  New Orleans Second Line
  My Babe (Little Walter)
  On Broadway
  The Lion Sleeps Tonight
  Don’t Get Around Much Anymore
  Louie Louie

  Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)
      …and more! 
 
Requirements: At minimum, you should bring harps in the keys of A, Bb, C and D  –  if you have more, bring ‘em all!  Recommended models are Hohner Marine Band, Hohner Special 20, Hohner Pro Harp, Seydels (various models). Email the Passim School if you’re not sure what to get.
