Celebrated harmonica player Steve Lockwood brought his rare talents to The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday, doing his best to pass on his world-renowned skills to dozens of eager students.

Mr Lockwood has played with the acts as diverse as Larry Adler, Chris Difford from Squeeze and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

He has recorded 80 albums and even has a degree in his craft from Anglia Ruskin University.

Students of all abilities were guided through various styles and techniques during three hours of expert tuition, playing as a group and solo to master tunes from blues, country and pop-rock genre.

Although it was the first time Mr Lockwood had been at The Apex this year, the workshops have been a regular feature at the venue for three years and will be back next month.
