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. Under Corky's lead, The West End String Quartet and percussionist Frank Donaldson complete the Chamber Blues Band. For more information please visit
