RIP Ed Bickert (1932-2019)

Undoubtedly Canada's greatest guitarist, Ed Bickert passed away on February 28. I could post a few platitudes but much better for me to refer you to what well-known northeast guitarist Roly Veitch wrote back in 2009.

Ed Bickert was 86.
Sadly missed.
Lance.

Very sad news. You know people are getting older but it's still a shock.
Ed Bickert, the unassuming, quiet supreme master of jazz guitar.
