UNDER THE BEAMS CONCERT – CORKY SIEGEL’S CHAMBER BLUES
February 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$35.00
Few can claim to have forged an entirely original genre of music, but in the 60’s, Corky Siegel did just that. Guiding the blues of Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters out of smoky bars and onto the stages of the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic and beyond, the harmonica-playing mad scientist had the tuxedo-and-gown crowd on its feet, clamoring for more of this blues-classical alchemy. These days, the harmonica virtuoso and composer is continent-hopping with Indian percussion and string quartet in Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues, continuing to bring classical and blues fans shoulder-to-shoulder, and obliterating musical categorization in the process. Chamber Blues is celebrating more than 30 years of performances that have brought this original genre to great success. This journey has included countless radio, TV, and major motion picture credits and many prestigious honors and awards. Chamber Blues has completed their 4th CD “Different Voices” (the 25th for Corky) and it is scheduled for release at our February 2017 concert.
