King and armed with the creative genius and instrumental prowess that have defined his career for nearly four decades, blues harmonica player, and part of the Siegel/Schwall Band, Corky has pioneered an original, genre-busting Chamber blues - a fresh, innovative sound capturing the sparkling qualities of classical music merged with the emotional melodic style of blues, all within an intimate chamber setting.
