The NHL is Britain's national harmonica association, with members world wide, supporting, helping and encouraging the playing of all types of music on the chromatic, diatonic, tremolo, octave and chord harmonicas. Paul Jones is our President.
The H2016 International Festival will take place in the Folk House, Bristol on Oct 28-30, 2016. The main artists are Philip Achille, Giles Hedley, Brendan Power/Tim Edey, Guitarmoncello and Donald Black. Stop Press - The Friday evening programme, including the AGM and jams, will take place at The Hatchet Inn because the Folk House has its own concert that evening. See the main festival page for details.
Don't forget that you can test your metal and improve your performance by taking part in the contest. Check the details on the festival web page, choose a piece of music and get some practicing in before the festival. Let us know if you want to take part, but if necessary you can enter on the day if you register before 10am on Sat 29 Oct.
