Essential to The Great Blues Revival of the 1960s, Siegel-Schwall earned their stripes backing such blues legends as Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon. Corky Siegel’s famed career as a groundbreaking blues-classical musician has seen him perform with world-class symphonies all over the U.S., his music used in the Olympics, TV specials and major Motion Pictures. A music PhD, a photographer and mayoral candidate, Jim Schwall has had no less an esteemed career. The Boston Globe called him, “Undoubtedly the best electric guitarist in the country.” Together with genuine notables Rollo Radford on bass and Sam Lay on drums, they form one of the greatest blues outfits in the country today.
