John Cephas has passed

March has been a bad month for my friends. I’ve been losing people left and right.

John Cephas was a friend that I met at Blues Week in Elkins, West Virginia about 15 years ago. His partner, Phil Wiggins, gave me my first lessons in how to play the harmonica. I have their CDs on my ipod and I always mist up when I think of those great days back in the early 90s.

John was 78, which I think is much too young to leave us. He will surely be missed.
