The Hideout Harmonica Hoedown
The Hideout Harmonica Hoedown
The 4th annual celebration of the world's most popular portable instrument!

Joe Filisko is revered as a master player, teacher, custom harmonica pioneer, researcher and historian. While known by many as a blues player, he'll be sitting in with the Chicago area Cajun group, The Muscovy Ducks.

James Conway, a true innovative traditionalist, is considered one of the finest harmonica players in Celtic music in addition to blues, folk and other styles. He'll be accompanied by percussionist extraordinaire Tim Mulvenna.

Curator & MC Bob Kessler brings his colorful modern/avant-garde/minimalist take on the instrument, often using looping to perform unique arrangements live on stage of his original works.

SPECIAL GUESTS: Jim Liban with Joel Paterson. Jim Liban, based in Milwaukee, is known internationally as one of the foremost post-war blues harmonica stylists. Some of his original songs have been recorded by national blues artists including Johnny Winter and Lonnie Brooks. Joel Paterson is one of Chicago (and the world's) finest guitarists in blues, swing, rockabilly, and everything in between.
