At the very same time, Sebastopol´s own Catfish Jack Chauvin, a harmonica player (and instructor) of "the highest order" will be enhancing our blues experience with a little "harp" instruction for those hoping to expand their instrumental repertoire without breaking the bank…or the overhead compartment on the plane the next time you travel to music camp.

Once you have registered for the festival, you will arrange and pay for your lodging directly with "the Cone" (rooms are $130 – 145/night).
