Biography: The duo of acoustic guitarist John Cephas and harpist Phil Wiggins enjoyed a partnership spanning across several decades, during which time they emerged among contemporary music's most visible exponents of the Piedmont blues tradition. Both were born in Washington, D.C., although Wiggins was a quarter century younger than his partner; they met at a jam session in 1977, and both performed as regular members of Wilbert "Big Chief" Ellis's Barrelhouse Rockers for a time prior to Ellis' death. Their music, rooted in the rural African-American dance music of Virginia and North Carolina, showed the influence of Blind Boy Fuller, Gary Davis, and Sonny Terry, with a broad repertoire consisting of Piedmont blues standards as well as an eclectic sampling of Delta stylings, RB, ballads, ragtime, gospel, and country western; from their 1984 debut onward, Sweet Bitter Blues, Cephas and Wiggins' sound applied sophisticated traditional instrumentation and modern gospel-edged vocals to both traditional standards and their own hard-hitting compositions, offering a soulful acoustic option to electric blues. A popular festival act, they also issued LPs including 1986's W.C. Handy Award-winning Dog Days of August, 1988's Walking Blues, 1992's Flip, Flop and Fly and 1996's Cool Down. They kept going strong and in 1999 released their ninth album, Homemade, on the legendary Alligator label. In 2000 Bullseye Blues issued From Richmond to Atlanta, a compilation of tracks from Cephas Wiggins' three Flying Fish albums recorded between 1984 and 1992. The duo continued to tour and play festivals, helping to keep the Piedmont sound alive. In the summer of 2002, they released Somebody Told the Truth, a mixture of old and new tracks that reintroduced them to the next generation of blues fans.

Cephas & Wiggins - Bluesmen (1993)

Review: Both John Cephas' and Phil Wiggins' instrumental styles exemplify what has been termed as "Piedmont" or the "East Coast" blues tradition and connects with the styles of other major Piedmont artists especially Blind Boy Fuller, Gary Davis, and Sonny Terry. Cephas and Wiggins current compilation remains centered in their regional tradition of acoustic guitar and harmonica, offering an energetic and soulful option to contemporary electric blues.
This audiophile DDD disc from Piedmont bluesman John Cephas & Phil Wiggins is a real treat for those who like a little refinement in their blues and roots music.
