Harmonica Hoedown!

The Hideout hosts the The Hideout Harmonica Hoedown on Sunday. Here's the background straight from the source:

Chicago has been home to some of the finest harmonica players in its storied musical history and remains one of the top 'harmonica towns' in the world.

Joe Filisko is arguably the foremost authority on nearly all aspects of the diatonic harmonica, and one of its most respected players and teachers.

James Conway is one of the world's most recognized players not only of traditional Irish and other Celtic music, but blues, folk and many other styles.

Bob Kessler is a member of Americana group The BlackWilloughbys, former student of many of Chicago's top players and brings his own eclectic musical taste to the evening which celebrates blues, jazz, classical, celtic, Cajun, folk and more, as played on the world's most popular portable instrument.

Doors at 6, show at 7.


Listen to Mike Stephen's preview on his Outside the Loop Radio show.


From last year's grand finale:


Joe Filisko with Eric Noden at the Lisle Library in January.


James Conway from August 2011 at a performance in Annandale.


Bob Kessler playing John Hiatt.


The BlackWilloughbys playing Led Zeppelin on WGN-AM.


Comments welcome.
