Traditional Series: Phil Wiggins and the Chesapeake Sheiks
Phil Wiggins, broadly acknowledged as the greatest blues harmonica player of our time, is the second of our NEA Folk Heritage Fellows to perform on this series. He performed for decades with the late John Cephas in the duo Cephas and Wiggins. Since the death of John Cephas, Mr. Wiggins has created a variety of ensembles to continue the tradition. We have the honor to present him with his largest ensemble, the Chesapeake Sheiks. In addition to playing Piedmont Blues, they also perform a lot of early jazz, including the music of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. They make a great evening of music and dance!
