Singletary Center Signature Series 2018-19
Join us for the Singletary Center's 2018-19 season as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the UK School of Music!
Thursday September 13, 2018 - 7:30pm - Howard Levy & Chris Siebold in the SCFA Recital Hall
Multiple Grammy Award Winner Howard Levy is an acknowledged master of the diatonic harmonica, a superb pianist, innovative composer, recording artist, bandleader, teacher, producer, and Chicago area resident. His musical travels have taken him all over the geographical world and the musical map. Equally at home in Jazz, Classical music, Rock, Folk, Latin, and World Music, he brings a fresh lyrical approach to whatever he plays. This has made him a favorite with audiences worldwide, and a recording artist sought after by the likes of Kenny Loggins, Dolly Parton, Paquito D’Rivera, Styx, Donald Fagen, and Paul Simon. As a sideman, Howard has appeared on hundreds of CDs and played on many movie soundtracks.
Levy is perhaps best known for the four CD’s he recorded with Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, a unique band that set the musical world on its ear back in the early 1990’s. He got back together with the band in 2010 and recorded the CD Rocket Science. They toured extensively in 2011-2012, and Howard won a Grammy for Best Instrumental Composition for “Life in Eleven,” which he wrote with Bela Fleck.
Levy has been performing with guitarist Chris Siebold for over six years now; the duo will perform with the Osland/Dailey Jazztet for this engagement.
