Live and Local

Chris Corkery of The Dirty Hands Band, and the Illinois Chamber Orchestra


Bloomington/Normal-based singer-songwriter Chris Corkery cut his musical teeth as frontman of the heartland rock group The Dirty Hands Band. He’s been playing solo at honky-tonks and barrooms around Illinois from Chicago to St. Louis for the last ten years. Chris will join me live on the Thursday edition of the show. And I’ll talk with conductor Alastair Willis about this weekend’s concerts by the Illinois Chamber Orchestra.
