The 22nd annual BATTLE OF THE BLUES HARPS presented by Southland Blues Magazine will be held Thanksgiving Eve, November 24, 2010. The 2010 “Harp Battle” will be held once again in the Crystal Ballroom at the Golden Sails/Best Western Hotel in Long Beach, CA.

The appearance of KIM WILSON and HIS BAND at this year’s Harp Battle has been confirmed . It will be the great blues singer, songwriter and harp player’s first ever appearance at the event. Multi Handy Award “Blues Band of the Year” winners ROD PIAZZA & THE MIGHTY FLYERS will return for their 22nd consecutive appearance.

Also appearing will be Southland Blues Magazine July cover artist DARRELL MANSFIELD, San Diego harpmaster BILLY WATSON, JOHNNY MASTRO, lead singer and harp player of The Mama’s Boys and the dynamic PINK ARGUELLO & 2000 LBS OF BLUES. The one and only JAMES HARMAN will return this year as well as singer, songwriter and guitarist DOUG MacLEOD. “Mississippi” JOHNNY DYER, one of the best proponents of the Muddy Water and Little Walter Chicago style of blues will be joining Kim Wilson and his band on stage. LARRY “Big House” DAVID, winner of the Road to the Battle of the Blues Harps five week competition has just been added to the lineup as well. Doug will M.C. and open the show with an acoustic set.
