Hohner and Country Music Hall of Fame Join Forces with Make Music Nashville for Make Music Day

NASHVILLE, TN, JUNE 12, 2023…Hohner and the Country Music Hall of Fame proudly announce their partnership with Make Music Nashville for this year’s Make Music Day celebration in Nashville, Tennessee. Make Music Day is an annual event held on the summer solstice that aims to promote and inspire musical instrument playing across the country. Hohner has been actively involved in supporting harmonica lessons at these events since their inception, providing instruments to numerous locations nationwide, including the upcoming Nashville event at Plaza Mariachi.

Make Music Nashville is a non-profit festival that offers an all-day, open-access experience, featuring an array of free music-related activities. This year’s event promises a wealth of exciting opportunities for individuals of all ages. Hohner is proud to support the Harmonica Workshop with Carlos DeFord Bailey. For all who have dreamed of learning how to play harmonica, join for a group harmonica lesson to pay homage to the legendary DeFord Bailey, an iconic figure in early country music and the genre’s first Black star. Participants will have the opportunity to experience the joy of playing the harmonica firsthand, as they learn to blow and draw on their very own “harp.” Complimentary harmonicas will be provided to participants while supplies last, enabling aspiring musicians to embark on their musical journey with their very own Hohner harmonica.

Join Hohner, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and Make Music Nashville on June 21st at Plaza Mariachi in Nashville, Tennessee, for an unforgettable Make Music Day celebration.
