About The Flower Fields:

Spring Harp Fest XIII

 Spring Harp Fest XIII, Harry Griffen Park, La Mesa, Saturday, April 7th, noon to 6pm.


 Oh Yeah!! Once again we are proud to announce the 13th annual SPRING HARP FEST. Be sure to pack sunscreen, lawn chairs, and a few good friends and join us for a good old-fashioned concert in the park! It will be held Saturday, April 7th, from noon to 6pm in picturesque Harry Griffen Park (a short walk from the Amaya Street Trolley Station) in beautiful LA MESA, near Grossmont High School!

Every Easter weekend some of Southern California’s finest harmonica players perform at this family-friendly outdoor musical event. SPRING HARP FEST XIII will again benefit the “Blues in the Schools” program, in conjunction wit our local blues society, “Blues Lovers United of San Diego”. BLUSD presents blues concerts in local schools with full student participation, in order to increase understanding, appreciation and love for this important, wholly American musical art form.

Our Mission:
To promote understanding and appreciation of the harmonica and pass on love of the harmonica to the next generation.

SPRING HARP FEST is a totally non-profit effort, produced by a hardworking group of volunteer organizers and musicians dedicated to keeping appreciation of the harmonica alive for our next generation. During these times of school deficits, we are very proud to support American music in our schools!

Spring Harp Fest raises funds through donations from local individuals and businesses, and at the event itself from freewill donations for food, soft drinks, tee-shirts, CD’s and prize drawings. All profits go to support the Blues in the Schools musical outreach program sponsored by BLUSD.  WANT TO HELP?  You can donate or volunteer though our website, or contact John Frazer (see above) or Budd Willis  619-252-1844  (ten.xocnull@etilddub)


We have musicians available to appear on your radio or television broadcast for promotional/ entertainment opportunities. Contact Harmonica John Frazer to schedule.

BLUSD Compilation Flash Drive

Posted: 02/01/2012 (1:03 am) | Filed under: Member,member bands

BLUSD Member Bands,
We want to provide a unique benefit of membership to Blues Lovers United of San Diego, and to our member bands as well. One of the unique benefits of membership we’ll be offering our members in 2012 is a thumbdrive loaded with local music — two songs from each of our member bands. This is a great way to promote your band to BLUSD members, and a great way for our members to familiarize themselves with the wonderful music San Diego’s own bands are putting out. What a cool promotional tool to put your music in the hands and ears of a ready-made fan base!
Please note that these will not be sold, nor will your songs ever be sold by BLUSD. We simply want to give a thumbdrive to each individual who joins or renews with BLUSD during the year so they can get a flavor of various bands, enhancing your visibility and, possibly, winning over new fans.
Please submit your songs in mp3 format only.
Email only 2 songs to: gro.DSULBnull@radnelacgig (in separate emails to keep the size of your email reasonable, please), or if you’d rather, just email a link to each of the 2 songs you want to submit and we’ll download them from your site.
Please DO: Send recordings of your BLUSD Member Band
Please DO: Send only digital copies of music that you have the right to legally distribute. You’re the music pro – we trust you to know and comply with the rules and guidelines for publishing and sharing digital content.
Please DO: Submit ONLY 2 songs. Not 3 or more, please. If you send more than 2, I won’t know which ones to pick and won’t include any, so please send only the 2 you want included. (Thanks)
Please DO: Get your songs in no later than Feb 10, 2012
Please DO: Tell any other BLUSD ~Member Bands~ about this, and BLUSD members, too.
Please DO: Pick songs that typify the music your band is about.
Please DO: Feel free to direct your questions or concerns to the same email address.
Please DO: Include a 3-sentence bio about your band. No other Bio will be used.
Please DO: Consider becoming a BLUSD Member band for inclusion on this compilation and other benefits if you are receiving this email but are NOT a BLUSD member band. Only member bands will be included in this compilation.
Thank you,
Dane Terry for BLUSD
