Siegel is a Chicago Blues Hall of Fame inductee, a founder of Siegel-Schwall, who’s celebrating 30 years with his innovative Chamber Blues that includes virtuoso masters of strings, world percussion with Kalyan Pathak, and keyboards. Tracy Nelson’s signature song “Down So Low” was covered by Linda Ronstadt, Etta James, Maria Muldaur, Dee Dee Warwick, and Cyndi Lauper. Tracy’s duet recording with mega-country star Willie Nelson, “After the Fire is Gone” was nominated for a Grammy Award.

He is a composer, blues pianist, singer/songwriter, and winner of the Lila Wallace national award for chamber music composition, the Illinois Arts Council Fellowship Award for Music Composition, Chicago Lifetime Achievement Award, and Chicago Blues Hall of Fame. Along with the members of the ensemble and the illustrious guest collaborators Chamber Blues continues to break new ground in its 30th year of innovation.
“Gritty Chicago blues and rarefied classical chamber music might not seem like a match made in heaven — until you’ve heard Corky Siegel bring the two together … a crowning achievement.” – Chicago Tribune
