Farewell to John Cephas, Blues Musician
John Cephas died at his home in Woodford, Virginia, on Wednesday, March 4, at the age of 78.
The Caroline County resident was a nationally recognized blues singer and guitarist who played many local venues with singer and harmonica player Phil Wiggins--including the summertime Music on the Steps series at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library and the Bluemont concerts.
Whether you have been a fan for years or are just now hearing about him, you can relax and enjoy these albums available from the library: Flip, Flop & Fly; Dog Days of August; Guitar Man; Bluesmen; Homemade; and Tidewater Blues. He also performs "John Henry" on Global Village's Non-blues Secular Black Music.
