Re: [Harp-L] Guitar and Harmonica Club

You might be surprised on the harp players, you can get people to pick up a harmonica that wouldn't consider another instrument. It's just a non-threatening instrument for a beginner. 
I don't know how big of a room you have or whatever, but if you have a whole bunch of people, I'd let them break off in a couple groups. If you don't have space for that to work, I wouldn't worry about it much. 
You'll be playing in G, I assume. I'd have most of the harps playing chords and maybe trade on the solos. You could have some guys playing straight with a G harp, some cross with a C, depending on what they show up with. If some kid shows up with a chromatic, count yourself lucky, even more lucky if you get a bass. I'd make it open to more instruments, a trumpet probably won't do you much good, but if you have a violin player come in, a banjo player, it will add to it. 
Heck you could have a kid with a washboard. They still sell those, they've got them at my local hardware store. 

Give me an idea what you've got in mind and how old the kids are.
