The 2nd Annual Carpe Diem Summer Solstice Celebration will take place on June 24, 5:00pm, at St. Michaels Auditorium, SMMHS. The event will feature Phil Wiggins and the Chesapeake Sheiks, with special guest tap dancer Baakari Wilder and singer-songwriter Lea Morris.
Phil Wiggins is arguably America’s foremost blues harmonica virtuoso. While rooted in the melodic Piedmont or “Tidewater” blues of the Chesapeake region, his mastery of the instrument now transcends stylistic boundaries. Born in Washington D.C. in 1954, Phil Wiggins achieved worldwide acclaim over three decades as one half of the premier Piedmont blues duo of Cephas & Wiggins. Since the death of guitarist and singer John Cephas in 2009, Phil brought his harmonica wizardry to bear in a variety of musical collaborations.”
