Joe Filisko & Eric Noden (Chicago, USA)

When:
Wed 10 Jan 2018
Time:
Doors Open 5:30pm. Show Starts 6:30pm.
Details:
The blues and roots music duo Joe Filisko and Eric Noden make an unforgettable impression. Their jaw-dropping virtuosity enables them to create more layers of sound and feeling than most full bands can summon, and both are high-energy, ultra-rhythmic performers. The collective result, in both their live shows and their recordings are charged, dramatic performances that are simultaneously powerful and sophisticatedly subtle.

Joe Filisko is a master of all the classic blues harmonica styles. As Dennis Gruenling of Blues Review says, “Joe Filisko could be the best prewar blues harmonica stylist in the world today.” Kim Wilson of The Fabulous Thunderbirds agrees: “Joe is one of the rare talents on the instrument of the harmonica. He is the guy that does what most players can’t even think about doing.” In addition, Jerry Portnoy who has played harmonica with Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton says, “Joe plays to the strengths and unique capabilities of the instrument and employs the full range of tonal colors, trills, flutters, chord rhythms, and other special effects that make his playing so expressive – all in service of the music. My admiration for his skill and musicianship is boundless.” Filisko is not only an accomplished performer, but a skilled harmonica craftsman as well.

Eric Noden is a master bluesman in his own right. Deeply rooted in the music of 20’s & 30’s blues pioneers, Eric Noden’s percussive guitar work, timeless song writing and well-traveled blues vocals have earned the respect of audiences, critics, and musicians worldwide. The Illinois Entertainer described Eric “As a spiritual heir to Chicago blues guitarists of the ’20s and ’30s like Tampa Red and Big Bill Broonzy. This multi-talented acoustic artist fills an important niche in the city’s mostly plugged-in blues scene.”
