Kids' Harmonica Class

David Berntson will be visiting the Meraki Cooperative in Clarksdale on Saturday at 10 AM, located at 278 Sunflower avenue. He will be handing out 100 harmonicas to kids, courtesy of Hohner! He'll also be teaching a kids' harmonica class so the youngsters will be able to start playing their new instrument!

David has played blues harmonica for over 40 years, both in his home state of Illinois, and in Oklahoma.  He is a master of Chicago Blues, Piedmont blues, Mississippi delta style Blues and Jump Blues.
