Strobe for Clinics: January 23, 2016 Amplified Harp Clinic

In January, Strobe welcomes…Amplified Harp Clinic January 23, 2016 with Martin Lang

Martin_BWHarmonica players are invited to join Martin Lang, Chicago-based blues harmonica player on Delmark Records and Random Chance Records, for discussion of fundamentals and advanced harp techniques, on January 23, 2016, at Strobe Recording Studio, 2631 W. Division St., Chicago, IL, from 11am-6pm.

This is the first-ever clinic by Lang, who recently released Grammy-balloted debut solo album Chicago Harp Blues Sessions, made a name as Taildragger’s (Bluesman on Delmark Records) harmonica player for over twenty-two years, as well as performing on over a dozen records on artists ranging from Chicago’s Rockin’ Johnny to Willie Buck. Lang has performed at numerous Chicago Blues Fests and toured overseas, bringing traditional Chicago blues harmonica to wider audiences. Lang uses Filisko harmonicas.

Students can learn how to develop fundamentals and increased confidence and success on the bandstand. Certain harp lovers are travelling from as far as St. Louis, Mo. and Minneapolis, Mn. to hear what Lang has to share. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own rig to the event. Special musical guests at the clinic are Taildragger and Rockin’ Johnny (Delmark Records).
