The harmonica workshops were extremely rewarding for me. Special thanks to the Houston Blues Society for helping out with harmonicas. The Society for the Performing Arts staff was remarkably helpful and kind. I am grateful to be a part of it all and have my band perform at the opening reception. Star of Hope Mission brought in 30-40 kids for the Gregory School blues harp workshop. I'd deem having nearly 60 youths mixed with a spattering of adults packed a library for a blues harmonica workshop in Freedman's Town a huge success. I've been teaching/lecturing blues and harmonica at schools, community colleges, universities, at home and in churches for many years. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. To have a non profit of SPA's stature to show us how it is done truly benefits all of us on the Houston blues scene. Don't miss the Jones Hall Performance. The blues community needs your support and it is sure to be a fantastic celebration.
