Garfield Angove, the Detroit Blues Society Lifetime Achievement Award Winner in '07, passed away on June 5, 2015.
Garfield toured throughout the Midwest and east coast with the Sam Lay Blues Band. He often backed Koko Taylor, Mighty Joe Young, Johnny Littlejohn, Johnny Young and other top Chicago blues artists. He also performed with James Peterson and his young son Lucky. Gar was a welcome guest to sit in with Muddy Waters when he came through town. He also played on both Luther Allison LPs on the Motown label.
An astute baseball fan, serious student of American History, and long-time fixture in Detroit's music scene, Gar’s authenticity and relaxed style made friends and fans everywhere he went.
