    Ann Arbor, MI, US | 3:30pm

    Corky Siegel & Marcella Detroit w/The Chamber Blues Ensemble Blues meets classical music, with a Detroit-born special guestCorky Siegel, Chamber Blues progenitor, co-founder of the Siegel-Schwall Band and Chicago Blues Reunion participant announces a concert event, set for THE ARK in Ann Arbor, Michigan, that promises to break musical and cultural boundaries in no uncertain terms. The evening will also serve to be celebrate of multiple anniversaries, as well, including the 40th for Alligator Records, the Chicago-based label for which Siegel and Chamber Blues record: the 25th of the (anti)establishment of Chamber Blues, Corky's revolutionary blues-classical fusion concept and the 70th of Corky's ongoing love affair with Planet Earth. Siegel has arranged for for a program that melds his reverent re-imagining of the blues for which he's become so well known over the course of a career that has spanned five decades (and counting) with disparate, yet compatible iconoclastic talents of the original "20 feet from stardom vocalist" Marcella Detroit. Marcella Detroit is a musical force whose spell-binding vocals have inspired recordings, tours, and collaborations with the biggest names in music including: Elton John (see video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmBCVrfrZic) Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton (with whom she co-wrote mega-hits like "Lay Down Sally") Carlos Santana, Bob Seger, and Leon Russell to mention a few. There is no vocal challenge to which Marcella cannot conquer.. A recent season of popular British TV's "Pop Star to Opera Star" showcased her five octave vocal range and nailing the most difficult repertoire of arias from the opera catalog. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbeAv16sVCkMaster percussionist Frank Donaldson has been a fixture with Chamber Blues for two decades. His resume includes stints with Archie Bell & the Drells ("Tighten Up") and the Ramsey Lewis Trio for eleven years as well as work with Curtis Mayfield, Ray Charles, Bill Withers and the Chicago Jazz Ensemble. Corky Siegel is, of course, the award-winning composer who, at a very young age, learned his craft at the feet of such legendary first generation bluesmen as Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf and as a part of Siegel-Schwall Band. He is credited with moving the blues from smokey clubs onto the classical concert stage and obliterating musical categorization in the process.The June 15th event, a melange of blues, classical, pop, jazz, rock and world music is billed as "a stellar night of extraordinary musical fireworks." None of the principals has any doubt that the evening will live up to its billing. Visit Corky Siegel & Marcella Detroit w/The Chamber Blues Ensemble on the web

“Re, my new album: "The Vehicle is a return to soulful roots. This may surprise some fans of the Shakespears Sister and Dancing Madly Sideways genres. But Marcy hails from the Motor City." Soul is in her blood, and she’s ready to play it like it is.”
