Two Music Legends on One Stage- a very, very special concert
(not a part of the scheduled concert series)
Corky Siegel with Ernie Watts on Saturday, December 10
Corky Siegel is known internationally as one of the world’s greatest blues harmonica players, blues pianist, singer and writer. He celebrates 55 years of performance, as co-founder of the popular Siegel-Schwall Band and created Chamber Blues, an ensemble that weaves blues and classical music together . A Chicago Blues Hall of Famer inductee and Lifetime Achievement awardee, Corky’s extensive catalogue of recordings are on RCA, Vanguard, Alligator, including selling millions of blues/classical recordings on the iconic classical label, Deutsche Gramophone. He learned his craft at the feet of such legendary bluesmen like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Willie Dixon, Little Walter, and Otis Spann. It was Maestro Seiji Ozawa, who walked into the bar and asked Corky Siegel to perform as a guest soloist with the Chicago Symphony that resulted in a blues/classical collaboration.
"Corky Siegel is a fabulous musician, clever songwriter, engaging storyteller, and an overall great showman." Steve Rashid - Studio5 Performing Arts Center

Winner of two Grammys, Watts has been featured on over 500 recordings by artists ranging from Cannonball Adderley to Frank Zappa. Born in Norfolk, Virginia, he began playing saxophone at 13.

This is a rare and priceless concert to be a part of. We are so honored to present these two legends together on one stage!
Please read an important COVID-related message and a note from Corky: We have made a commitment to our artists to respect their wishes regarding COVID protocol. Corky has requested attendees be vaccinated and masked. We will be checking Vax Cards.
"Cousin Corky here. I'm still requiring proof of vaccination and masks (both "reduce" viral load and work in all directions, offering layers of protection). People come to be uplifted and nurtured and take that home. I don't want anyone to take home Cyrus the Virus home and get sick from my music. LOL! When it to creating a clean and safe environment "for each other", it's really not such a big deal to wear a mask, show proof of vaccination, fasten a seatbelt, or drive carefully. Thank you for your understanding. I look forward to seeing your smiling and laughing....eyes. :-)" Cousin Corky
Please note this concert will be available both in-person or to livestream at home. Doors will open at 6:15PM. Music will begin at 7:00 PM.
