The 52nd Annual SPAH Convention
Airport Crowne Plaza Hotel & Convention Center , Denver
Many dozens (literally) of world class big name harmonica musicians from all around the planet flock to a different city every year to attend the annual SPAH Convention. These GREAT players mix freely with all the beginner and intermediate level people who fill the hotel.
Plenty of blues, but there is also classical, jazz, Cajun, Celtic, traditional harmonica trios, big harmonica bands,, country, bluegrass, a smattering of beatbox, and about any other genre of music you can imagine. Formal evening shows, workshops, seminars, vendors, and the infamous late night jam sessions!
The largest gathering of harmonica players in all of the Americas, possibly a decade before it's in Denver again. If you're in Colorado or anywhere near, you'll kick yourself later if you miss this years convention. Past few years people have been arriving as early as the Sunday before just to visit with friends, it's a great hang.
Bring your family, we have a couple of great kids programs, health & harmonica programs, and some day tours for those who wish to explore Denver beyond the convention hotel.
