Joe and Eric talk and trade tunes and stories with NEA National Heritage Fellow Phil Wiggins and Chesapeake Sheiks guitarist Matt Kelley. This Show will be recorded and all ticket holders will be able to view the show for 7 days after the live broadcast
PHIL WIGGINS is a versatile traditional harmonica player, continuing the Piedmont blues tradition, a gentle and melodic blues style of the mid-Atlantic region. He plays the diatonic ten-hole harmonica in the country blues style, cupping both hands around the instrument and playing acoustically. His sound is not shaped by the gear, the microphone or amplifier when performing on stage, instead by his complex syncopated patterns, breath-control and rhythm, stylistic virtuosity and fiery solo runs.
