Chico Schwall's
American Roots: Apr 14
Rock Island Line
Skiffle and the rise of British Rock, 1955-60
Chico Schwall's American Roots pays tribute to one of most important and least understood (and known) chapters in 20th century popular music. At it height in the late '50s England's 'Skiffle' Movement boasted over 30,000 bands throughout the country...teenaged boys with washboards, improvised one string tea chest basses, penny whistles and whatever guitars they could get their hands on teaching themselves their own special take on American music based in folk, country and blues and the jug bands of the 1920s. The kids in this movement went on to create the British Invasion, as the Beatles, the Kinks, The Who, Led Zeppelin, and more. [Wed, Apr 14 Concert info] [Tickets] [Pre-Concert Dinner]

Chick Corea
In Memory: Chick Corea
The Shedd Institute joins the world in mourning the passing of Chick Corea February 9th. We were honored to work regularly with Chick for the past 16 years in a series of extraordinary concerts both at the Hult Center and here at The Shedd, where his trio Vigilette was scheduled to return April 26th.
Corea, of course, was a legend: a brilliant, massively versatile and flat out 'playful' composer and musician who has inspired all of us for half a century. He was also--just as importantly to us here at The Shedd and our strongest memory--a wonderful human being who exuded joy, gentleness and love to all around him. We always felt blessed in his presence and will deeply miss him.
“It is my hope that those who have an inkling to play, write, perform or otherwise, do so. If not for yourself then for the rest of us. It’s not only that the world needs more artists, it’s also just a lot of fun.” -- Chick Corea, 1941-2021
