Join Corky for an intimate discussion where he might discuss how he got his start in the business as a youth, coming into music with Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf. Perhaps he'll share his history with Santana and Janis Joplin, what it was like to produce Joni Mitchell's music, or how he ended up playing blues harp at age 20 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra!

IS IT BLUES, IS IT CLASSICAL?
Few can claim to have forged an entirely original genre of music, but in 1966, Corky Siegel did just that. Guiding the blues of Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters out of the smoky cavern of Big Johns 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 Siegels Chamber Blues, continuing to bring classical and blues fans shoulder-to-shoulderand obliterating musical categorization in the process.
"A significant step forward into new dimensions of feeling, content and technique...a classification-shattering mix."
