In person: "Phil Wiggins is arguably America's foremost blues harmonica virtuoso," says the National Council for the Traditional Arts, and Scott Freck, General Manager of the North Carolina Symphony raves, "Phil is among a very small handful of virtuosos whose command of his instrument takes my breath away. His talent rivals that of any artist I've encountered in my career in Classical music, in my view placing him in the company of the Yo-Yo Mas and the Joshua Bells of the world." Feb 7, 7 pm
