Dear Harmonica-player, welcome to the SEYDEL
Every harmonica-player is also an artist, but not everybody has a band to play live - once in a year SEYDEL offers the chance to all players to present themselves live on stage together with a prefessional accompanying band.
The Blues harmonica contest - SEYDEL
open - takes place every year since 2007 and is part of the >Mundharmonika-live festivals held in Klingenthal / Germany.
The SEYDEL open is a competition with the audience doing the voting. However like in the last contests an "expert panel"is giving their voting, too. For sure we offer some great >trophies!
The playalong tracks
Every year we record playbacks that are given to the participants after registering. These are played by exactly the same band that is present at the contest's day. All participants therefore can prepare themselves for their performances.
Information on how to drive to Klingenthal and accomodation can be found >here.
Below you will find the full versions of the past contests - you can use them for free for your general rehearsal!
THe collection is a colorful mixture of many different Blues-pieces - perfect for playing along - have much fun - hopefully we will see you one day in Klingenthal on the SEYDEL
Right now you can register for the SEYDEL open harmonica contest 2017....more info about the festival on www.mundharmonika-live.de. After registration (and receipt of the fee) you will receive a download link for the mp3 full versions of the current playback tracks.
10 years anniversary of the SEYDEL
open Blues Harmonica Contest and 10 Blues Jam Tracks for your rehearsals! The band is the same band that played at the 1st SEYDEL open in 2007, namely the GREAT >Marbletones from the Netherlands!
