First Night Evanston invites you to “wring out the old year and ring in the new” with harmonica legend Corky Siegel and friends in a virtual year end concert. This special concert is hosted by First Night Evanston. It is made possible thanks to the support from valued sponsors Romano Wealth Management, Northwestern University, Kiwanis Club and Byline Bank.
Joining Siegel in this pre-recorded performance will be the Chamber Blues ensemble, jazz saxophone icon Ernie Watts and Chicago vocal diva Lynne Jordan. This will be a 95-minute celebration with wild blues harmonica, piano, and songs about unity, corn, justice, bridges, lies, potatoes and love.
The concert will begin at 10:00 PM CST and will be followed by a live Zoom with Corky and others for a sing-a-long version "Auld Lang Syne" with Corky, Ernie Watts and Lynne Jordan at midnight. There will be a special link to that version of "Auld Lang Syne" that can be watched separately at any time
