Jörg Hegemann

piano

Germany

Jörg Hegemann, who was born in 1966, will take us on a journey through time to 1930s Chicago, to boogie-woogie kings like Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis. This Westphalian pianist has toured Europe, the USA, and Russia for three decades. He directs the “BoogieWoogie Congress” Festival in Essen and was awarded the “German Boogie-Woogie Award Pinetop” in 2009. And he has also accompanied Bill Ramsey, Chris Howland, and Hape Kerkeling as the “man at the piano.”
