Tommy Harkenrider Blues & Roots

Monthly, and Out of Town Clinics

I can’t believe it has been a year already. I’m looking forward to our annual clinic with friends from all over the world. As always my co-host and fellow Grez guitar picker Paul Pigat will be returning from Vancouver. NAMM brings in some of the world’s best players. I’m lucky to have a couple of my friends coming from both the UK and Belgium. This year my special guests include Bristol’s young hot picker Ruzz Evans. A young dedicated musician with expertise in Rockabilly. He has some incredible lines to teach as well as stories what it’s like being a roots musician in the UK. I am also honored to have my close friend Tim Ielegems from Belgium. His band Shakedown Tim plays some of the most authentic Jump Blues in the World. When American legends such as James Harmon visit Europe they ask for Tim and his band by name. If you want to know Goree Carter licks or just who Goree Carter is Tim is the guy. Obviously, Paul Pigat needs no introduction. He has been a part of these clinics from the beginning. We have discussed everything from altered scales to Travis picking. I can’t wait to see what we can get out of him this year. Barry Grez will be back as well showcasing his guitars. When it comes to Barry’s guitars they are some of the best, and I am proud to be a Grez owner and player.
