- - Phil Wiggins, who was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in 2017, has appeared in the American Folklife Center's Homegrown Concert Series, Summer Music Jam series and Archive Challenge. According to the National Council for Traditional Arts, "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, 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, Wiggins has brought his harmonica wizardry to bear in a variety of musical collaborations.
