Internationally-recognized blues harmonica, piano legend Corky Siegel returns to The Acorn!
For more than half a century, Corky Siegel has brought new colors to the blues ...to bridge musical genres and cultural divides, making the world slightly smaller and kinder - Steven Wine, Associated Press
About the Artist:
Corky Siegel is known internationally as one of the world's great blues harmonica players, a blues pianist, singer-songwriter, creator of CHAMBER BLUES and the sole pioneer/composer of award-winning revolutionary works that weave blues and classical forms together. Co-founder of the SIEGEL-SCHWALL BAND, and Blues Hall of Fame Inductee, Corky Siegel has a catalogue of recordings on RCA, Vanguard, Alligator, and million selling blues/classical recordings on the iconic classical label Deutsche Grammophon. His close associations with the blues masters in the earlier days of Chicago blues, his essential part in the blues rock revolution, and his surprising success in bringing together blues and classical audiences make him a pivotal (though inconspicuous) figure in modern music history.
