The Atlantic Canada Harmonica Festival is the only festival of its kind in Eastern Canada. A celebration of the harmonica and all who play it, regardless of musical preference or style.
Spend the day with musicians who love this unique and versatile instrument. If you have ever thought about playing the harmonica, this is the place to start. If you played one in the past and it's now gathering dust, we'll inspire you to start again. And if you're a regular player, you'll be happy to jam or share a tune with other professional and amateur performers.
This is a relaxing and intimate festival, held on the grounds and inside the Heritage Village historic buildings.
The festival ends with a two hour showcase concert featuring harmonica players from all musical genres, from Isle of Skye, to the Mississippi Delta.
Parlour Jam: A jam session in the Homestead, in an informal and comfy setting. This is a "drop in / drop out" affair, and perfect for sharing a few tunes or an intimate jam session.
JAMboree!: This is your chance to play a few tunes in an informal song circle style. (i.e. play one tune, then move on to the next person in the circle.)
Evening Showcase: in the Clam Factory with our amazing line-up of players including class instructors and special guests!
Special Guests TBA. Stay Tuned!
