SEYDEL open 2012 - the winners

At this year's SEYDEL open harmonica contest we had 12 participants. We are happy that so many players registered for the contest - because of the nice atmosphere everybody had a big time and the contest was more a big harmonica-party than a strict contest.

The "> L.E. Boogie Band" from Leibzig did everything they could to give the players an aid during their presentation - this helped a lot to improve the quality of the playing and thus the success of the whole performance.

Each player was accompanied by the band very sympathetically - so the contestants got a fine feeling even during their contest presentaions.

Here are the winners:

The contestants came from all over Germany and the Netherlands - our special thanks go to those players who decided to take part right at the festival - some of them had their first stage presence ever - like the 14-year old Rocky Joe Hoffmann who registered "last minute" and reached the 8th place straight away thus gaining the junior award.


This year's SEYDEL open winner Bruno Laube and he is not older than 16 yet - together with SEYDEL CEO Lars Seifert at the awards show during the opening jam session of the festival Mundharmonika-Live on Friday evening.


The second place won Peter Volksdorf from Marburg (Germany), who took part at the contest for the second time and won the 3rd place in 2011 - we are curious what will happen at the SEYDEL open in 2013!


Sannie Jansen, the winner of the previous year won the 3rd place - here together with Dr. Slide and Franz Täubert on bass (L.E. Boogie Band).
