2018 Events


Chris Thomas King

April 21, 2018


Multi-talented Grammy Award-winning blues artist, producer, composer and actor, Chris Thomas King grew up among the finest blues musicians in the genre at his father’s famed Baton Rouge blues club, Tabby's Blues Box and at Heritage Hall. Chris began touring with artists like Buddy Guy and B. B. King in his teens. Initially known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop, Chris Thomas King reached a whole new audience with the Coen Brothers film O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Corky Siegel's Chamber Blues

June 23, 2018


PSU & the Colonial Fox team up for the finale of the 2018 Pittsburg Chamber Music Festival. Few can claim to have forged an entirely original genre of music. Corky Siegel did just that. Guiding the blues out of the smoky caverns of Big John's and Pepper's Lounge and onto the stages of the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic and beyond, Corky reaches across the globe from different sides of the musical landscape, dissolving the walls between genre and people to take us to places we have never been before.

The Brimstone Coolers

August 11, 2018


Lemuel Sheppard (saxaphone), Todd McGeorge (percussion), Tim McGeorge (rhythm guitar) and Joe Robinson (bass) bring their unique blend of blues, rock, reggae, funk and jazz to the stage. The Brimstone Coolers played the Southeast Kansas scene in the early 1990s and reunite after 23 years for this one-night-only concert.

Grammy nominee Byron Berline brings his band; Billy Perry, Thomas Trapp, Greg Burgess, Richard Sharp and Steve Short for an exciting evening of traditional bluegrass and Western swing.

Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley

Led by fourth generation performers, David and Jimmy Nace this four-piece group’s musicianship and engaging stage presence has earned them appreciative audiences at concert halls, nightclubs and festivals in the Midwest and Southeast.
