This past Sunday, 18 April 2015, the hall of the Avsenik Museum was filled with the music of harmonicas, a folk instrument popular not only with our grandparents, but also with the musicians of today. Most of the harmonica players who came tend to carry their instruments in their pockets at all times. All they need to do is pull them out and they're ready for a concert. The event was organised by the Avsenik-Hohner Gallery, which has a new home in the building opposite the Avsenik Restaurant. For the 9th consecutive year, they have succeeded in organising an unforgettable day made special by harmonicas – instruments that may be ancient but still offer plenty of fun. In the morning we attended an one-hour seminar on repairing and tuning harmonicas, while the afternoon was set aside for a concert with a rich and varied line-up.
