Edinburgh Harmonica Workshop

"I am very excited to announce that we will be running the Edinburgh Harmonica Workshop again in 2019 from 19th - 21st July and hope that you will be able to join us.

Four excellent teachers

The weekend will feature performances and workshops led by Lee Sankey, Ronnie Shellist, Tomlin Leckie and Liam Ward.

Lee Sankey will be focussing on making your harmonica playing more groovy with awesome rhythm and timing ideas. He will also be giving a Country Blues primer!

Ronnie Shellist is going to present some workshops on Advanced Bending, 3rd Position Blues Phrasing and Blending Techniques to get great textures and sounds on the harp.

Tomlin Leckie will present workshops on Blues Basslines, Minor Blues Playing and practicing with Backing Tracks.

Liam Ward will introduce us to Jug Band style playing as well as material from his excellent new album “Uprising”.

Opening Night Performance

The whole event kicks off on 19th July at 7pm with a performance featuring all the teachers and the stellar house band at The Voodoo Rooms.


Workshops run from 10 am till 5 pm on Saturday and 10 am till 3.15pm on Sunday which means that you will be able to attend seven different 75 minute workshops over the weekend. There will be 14 different workshops to choose from.

Q and A Session

On Sunday afternoon there will be a Q and A session with all the teachers so you can find out everyone’s opinions on the same topic.

Jam Sessions

There are multiple jam sessions over the weekend including a full band electric jam session at the world-famous Voodoo Rooms - everyone will get a chance to play with the amazing house band!

Only 80 tickets!

So that you get plenty of time with the teachers there are only 80 spots over the weekend and we do usually sell out so don’t leave it to late to book.
