Harmonica Bridge is a music festival devoted to harmonica. It presents masters of harmonica from all over the world. They play all genres of music on both diatonic and chromatic harmonica: from blues, folk, jazz & classical up to crossover and pop. The festival has been held in Toruń, Poland for 18 years. The artistic director is Sławek Wierzcholski - one of Poland's top harmonica players.
Harmonica Bridge not only presents harmonica masters of the highest level. There are also music photo exhibitions, harmonica workshops, jam sessions and last but not least - harmonica contest (with the Grand Prix of 1000,- euro!) which already allowed to emerge the best Polish harp players.
