One of the first people we met when we moved to Marietta. We went down to pick up tickets to the Blues Festival. His passion and love of music spoke volumes during that first meeting. He was quite a character. His presence at the Blues Competition and Festival will be sorely missed as it was this year! RIP Cobbler John and thank you for the warm welcome to the City of Marietta and the Blues Festival! You will not be forgotten!
