    Harmonikids Year In Review

    Every year at this time I take time to reflect upon and share Harmonikids annual accomplishments in the past year. Even in light of considerable achievements in past years, 2013 was a particularly productive year. Harmonikids sessions and workshops effectively aided and delighted children with widely diverse special challenges all over the country. Hohner Harmonicas was particularly generous in it's sponsorship of eight sessions.

    Harmonikids HOHNER-sponsored session #7

    Denier Youth Correctional Center

    On October 4, 2013 I brought my HOHNER-sponsored Harmonikids session to the DeNier Youth Services Center; a correctional facility in Durango Colorado. It was my third visit to this full-lockdown strict disciplinary environment designed to rehabilitate kids who had lost their way and were being held there by court order.

    Harmonikids - Snowden Cottage Detention Center

    Snowden Cottage Youth Detention Center

    Sometimes Harmonikids programs focus on youth who have been abandoned, neglected, abused, and/or are at gang risk – including some who have gotten in trouble and have been admitted to correctional facilities.

    Harmonikids at Sunflower Landing Teen Substance Abuse Rehab Center

    Sometimes my Harmonikids sessions have particularly deep-rooted personal meaning. Such is the case for my return visit to Sunflower Landing, in Dublin, MS. So much of the music and musicians that made the Blues the most popular and beloved music ever to be played on the harmonica came from rural towns in the Mississippi Delta. Howling Wolf, James Cotton, and Sonny Boy Williamson are just a few of the great Blues harpmen to come directly from the area.
