Phil Wiggins Blues House Party

About

Phil Wiggins is one of the nation’s foremost players of acoustic blues harmonica. His playing is rooted in the melodic Piedmont blues style of the mid-Atlantic region. In 2017, Wiggins received a National Heritage Fellowship, the so called “Living Cultural Treasure” award; it is the highest cultural honor the United States bestows on a traditional artist. In Phil Wiggins Blues House Party, Wiggins joins up with dance virtuoso Junious Brickhouse to celebrate this tradition and “reconnect the dance with the dance music.” Joining Wiggins and Brickhouse are guitarist Rick Franklin and fiddler Marcus Moore.
