In Celebration of Corky Siegel’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Folk Music Woodstock Opera presents: Corky UnCorked: Chicago Blues Hall of Fame legend Corky Siegel and world percussion virtuoso Kalyan Pathak.

Corky Siegel first appeared on the American music scene in the early 1960's when his ability to provoke stirring emotions through his unique synergy of vocals, keyboards, and electrifying blues harmonica quickly established him as a contemporary among the leading artists of his generation. In the beginning, Siegel teamed with his friend and guitarist, Jim Schwall to form the Siegel-Schwall Band. They were signed overnight by Vanguard, and later RCA Wooden Nickel. During the 60's and early 70's the band drew capacity crowds to the most popular clubs and auditoriums while their recordings received world acclaim.

During 1975 and the early 1980's Siegel toured as a solo artist, and singer-songwriter, showcasing his engaging blend of pure virtuosity, mixed with tongue-in-cheek humor. As a solo artist he has performed internationally from the Grenoble Jazz Festival in France to Canada's Montreal Jazz Festival and also toured with comedic icons Bob Hope and George Carlin. During this period, Siegel released two critically acclaimed solo recordings that captured his sterling harmonica, dazzling piano chops, and satirical lyrics. During this period he also released his 2nd ground-breaking recording as guest soloist with Seiji Ozawa and the San Francisco Symphony on the classical label Deutsche Grammophon. Whether performing solo, with symphony orchestra, with his Chamber Blues ensemble, the Siegel-Schwall Band, or with the Chicago Blues Reunion Band, Siegel is a joy to hear and watch.
