The Old Town School of Music’s performance series Old Town School on the Road, will present three of the legendary school’s acclaimed musical acts — Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues, Michael J. Miles and Sons of the Never Wrong — at the ECC Arts Center on the Elgin Community College Campus, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin. These three internationally renowned Chicago folk music treasures will share the stage in a folk music revue showcasing the groups individually and collaboratively in a two hour concert.
Walking the line between Beethoven and B.B. King, the Chamber Blues experience captures both the sparkling qualities of classical music and the emotional melodic style of blues. Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues made its first appearance at the ECC Arts Center in April of 1994 and now returns as part of the Center’s 20th anniversary celebration.
Sons of the Never Wrong have been creating original, turbo-charged alt-folk music for 20 years for a cult-like following. “If you haven’t had the chance to see Sons, it’s something to definitely add to your To-Do list,” says Indiana Public Radio. The trio, made up of Sue Demel (guitar, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Deborah Lader (vocals) and Bruce Roper (vocals, guitar), describes themselves as “three kind of mixed-up adults of perfect parentage…just crazy enough to think life in the fast lane comes with a banjo.”
The concert takes place 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 15 at the ECC Arts Center in Elgin. For more information, visit tickets.elgin.edu or call 847-622-0300.
