I am inviting you to bring your harp to the 2023 Blues Harp Jam Challenge. I am inviting all the daring Harper in the world to come and join me for the 2023 Blues Hop Jam challenge. It’s free in 2023, and you’ll be free, free inside yourself if you come and join me.
So Blues was the very first music that I kind of got the jazz feel for, and that I had the first chance to jam with blues players, with jazz players by playing the blues, because the blues is this incredible open, open-hearted, open structure that gives you freedom.
