About the event

About Howard Levy: WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAMLISTEN Featuring: Chris Siebold on guitar, Luiz Ewerling on drums & percussion, Joshua Ramos on bass Howard  Levy is an acknowledged master of the diatonic harmonica, a superb  pianist, innovative composer, recording artist, bandleader, teacher, and  producer. In 1970 at the age of 19, he discovered how to play the  diatonic harmonica as a fully chromatic instrument by developing  techniques on it that had never existed before. This enabled Howard to  take the harmonica out of its usual role as a Folk and Blues instrument,  and into the worlds of Jazz, Classical, Middle Eastern music, and more.

At home in many musical styles, the two- time Grammy Award  Winner (Pop Music Performance and Instrumental Composition with Bela  Fleck and The Flecktones) is a favorite with audiences worldwide and a  recording artist sought after by Kenny Loggins, Dolly Parton, Paquito  D’Rivera, Styx, Donald Fagen, Paul Simon, and many others. Howard has  appeared on hundreds of CD’s and several movie soundtracks, most  prominently on A Family Thing with Robert Duval and James Earl Jones.

His solo CD Alone and Together (Balkan Samba Records) and  his trio CD Tonight and Tomorrow (Chicago Sessions) both received 4-star  reviews in DownBeat. Howard also put out a classical CD featuring his  Concerto for Diatonic Harmonica and Orchestra- the first true concerto  composed for diatonic harmonica. Howard tours as a solo artist, with  Chris Siebold, Trio Globo, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and with his  new band, The Howard Levy 4.
