- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
The blues and roots music duo Joe Filisko and Eric Noden make an unforgettable impression. They are expert practitioners of harmonica and guitar styles that defined the blues in its earliest days but are now all too rarely heard. Their jaw-dropping virtuosity enables them to create more layers of sound and feeling than most full bands can summon. The collective result, in both their live shows and their recordings, are charged, dramatic performances that are simultaneously powerful and sophisticatedly subtle.
Music at the Museum is a monthly concert series produced by Chris Vallillo featuring the best in contemporary and traditional folk and acoustic music of all styles. Concerts are held the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Museum auditorium. Tickets are available at the door.
