Based in Chicago, roots and blues artists Joe Filisko and Eric Noden make an unforgettable impression.
Their jaw-dropping virtuosity enables them to create more layers of sound and feeling than most full bands can summon, and both are high-energy, ultra-rhythmic performers. The collective result— in both their live shows and their recordings— are charged, dramatic performances that are simultaneously powerful and sophisticatedly subtle.
Their material draws on 1920's-40's American styles of blues, folk and ragtime. Just a few of the duo's influences include Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Sonny Boy Williamson and Big Bill Broonzy.
Their high energy performances continue to captivate audiences at major festivals in the US & Europe.
Joe Filisko and Eric Noden's 2015 world tour dates include Australia, Germany, France the US & more.
