Northern Roots 2018

Tuesday May 15 2018

Perth Blues Club, Charles Hotel, North Perth

Always looking forward to Harp Attack when the Tin Sandwiches take over the Blues club.

The traditional workshop will start at 7.30pm and we advise you bring a Diatonic 10 hole harmonica in the key of 'C ' if you want to join in a beginners lesson.

You may wish to look at the display of harmonicas, microphones and equipment and have a chat with other like minded harmonica enthusiasts perhaps find out about the Harmonica club this is all good stuff!

Opening the show will be the 'CapperBros'. Brad Capper blowing his harps with his partner in music Dave Capper. Brad teaches group workshops and runs 'Harp Attack'selling and promoting new products for the harmonica enthusiast.

We have a few guests from our West Australian Harmonica Club. Chris Parkinson above wowed us with some inspiring playing at our last meeting.

Our special guests are highly experienced WA performers. We have Howie Smallman brilliant Chicago Blues Harp player from many bands but recently the 'Hips' and a fair while back now the 'Sneekers' and now 'Big Time Players'.

Paul Walter Daly, powerhouse RnB player will be blowing the back of his Tin Sandwiches with his beautiful custom Turner Microphone - hopefully you can get a close up look at this beauty!

The DooDaddies featuring Dave Brewer - Electric Guitar, John Wilson - Upright and Electric Bass and Yugon Chobanoff - Drums will back our special guests.

Dave Billing will host the evening and blow harmonica with his band the DooDaddies.

The plan is to get some jamming happening in the last set, pull a few Harpists from the crowd, encourage some spontaneity and have a huge amount of fun. Dancing permitted and encouraged.

There will be Harp related prizes- thanks to Mando Harps.

So come on down to PBC at the Charles Hotel Tuesday May 15 and celebrate one of the most soulful instruments.

Thank you to the Perth Blues Club
