BOWLING GREEN, Va. (AP) — The late blues guitarist John Cephas is being remembered with a Virginia historical marker.
The marker will dedicated June 21 in Bowling Green, where the Washington, D.C., native was a longtime resident. He died in 2009.
Born in 1930, Chephas played a guitar style known as Piedmont Blues. It involved a complex finger-picking style. He performed at rural dance parties and as a gospel singer.
The Caroline County dedication will be followed by a performance from musicians.
The historical marker was issued by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.
