Back by popular demand, this blues duo sizzled at Vail Jazz @ Riverwalk last summer, thumping up a visible steam of energy that had the entire lawn on its feet in rapt attention. Phil Wiggins’ ability to draw such audible power from his pocket-sized harmonica has been praised around the world, most recently by the National Endowment for the Arts, which awarded the Washington D.C. bluesman with the prestigious National Heritage Fellowship this fall. Complemented by the “rough-cut” six-string Americana of George Kilby Jr., this pair has proven itself a mind-bending blend of upbeat blues.[Organizer's description]
