Re: [Harp-L] Re: Harmonica Ensembles in America

I've met you,Vern. You're not a day over 50 -- between your ears.

You make some valid points. Most of the participants are ~70 because most of them at the events I have attended have been chromatic harmonica players. Diatonic harmonicas are attractive to a younger demographic.

Of the few harmonica festivals I've attended so far, the average age among participants seems to be closer to 70. Perhaps a slight exaggeration, but not by much.

That is great news for the harmonica!

Every year the number of people 70 and over grows and becomes a higher percentage of the population. Furthermore, my grandfather gave me my first harmonica and there are more and more grandfathers. Demographics are on our side.

Now, guess my age.
