CORKY SIEGEL & RANDY SABIEN 11/18
November 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Chicago Blues Hall of Fame, music legend CORKY SIEGEL, and Jazz violinist RANDY SABIEN combine virtuosity, wit and showmanship.
Blues harmonica ace, pianist, vocalist, Corky Siegel earned his craft at the feet of legendary first generation bluesmen Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf as a part of his Siegel-Schwall Band. His Chamber Blues is credited with moving the blues from smokey clubs to the classical concert stage obliterating musical categorization. Recent Chamber Blues release “Different Voices,” received Downbeat Magazine’s Editor’s Pick calling Corky a “National Treasure.”
Randy Sabien, a 25 year alum of Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” dazzles on jazz violin, piano, guitar, mandolin, and vocals. The Chicago Tribune says: “ Sabien’s art bristles with the spirit of bona fide jazz improvisation developing new musical motifs along the way.
Corky Siegel is a master of piano and harmonica, a superior entertainer, and writer of unusual songs. Who else writes Blues about Idaho potatoes?” –Chicago Magazine
“Corky Siegel fuses entertainment and intellect. There is no doubting the talent of this brilliant performer.” – Chicago Tribune
