Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

This week we welcome a very special guest, harmonica virtuoso and blues pioneer Corky Siegel, for an hour of lively conversation and live music. Host Glen Moberg will talk with Corky about his long career that started in the sixties with the legendary Siegel-Schwall Band, and progressed through the seventies and eighties with a series of critically acclaimed solo albums, to the Deutsch Grammophon release of William Russo?s Three Pieces for Blues Band and Symphony Orchestra with Seiji Ozawa and the San Francisco Symphony, to his own symphonic compositions and collaborations. Siegel’s newest project Chamber Blues, with the West End String Quartet, and Frank Donaldson on world percussion, blends classical and blues styles in a chamber music setting.
