Oh yeah!!!! Recently Maine Fiddle Camp has expanded its horizons and now offers instruction in just about EVERY traditional instrument, INCLUDING harmonica… read on:
John PranioJohn started his musical life as a drummer before the age of ten, but through the encouragement of "his poor mother," took up the quieter acoustic guitar in his teens. In high school John met a banjo player and was encouraged to try the fiddle. He was quickly hooked, and by the age of 20 began playing his "rhythmic" style of fiddling for contra dances around New York and New Jersey. In 1989 John moved to Maine and within a few years started the North Whitefield Contra dance with his wife Toki Oshima, and caller Ted Sannella. (more)
June Weekend I (June 15-17)
Steven WeissSteven Weiss began blowing harmonica when he was four years old. His father and grandfather both played the mouth organ as well. Growing up in the more popular cross-harp rock/blues/boogies styles, he began playing straight harp (melodies rather than chords or blues)- traditional, mostly old-timey, tunes on the harmonica in 1970, hanging out with southern tow boat pilots on the Ohio River near where he went to college. This was followed by many years living in Maine playing for contradances, folk clubs, concerts, festivals and playing back-up for other performers. (more)
