Byrd, Gilmore, Wiggins

Eric Byrd, Lea Gilmore, and Phil Wigginswith Karen Mohr

Lea Gilmore is one of the world's most respected and in-demand Gospel and Inspirational singers. She is known for her exquisite voice, bright smile, quick wit, and infectious sense of humor. It has been said that " Lea Gilmore's rich and passionate voice is a gift from her soul to our ears."

Eric Byrd has been playing professionally for over 30 years. Along with the principles of swing and be-bop, rousing gospel-tinged chords and trilling blues lines are fundamental elements of his performance style. Eric was named by URBANITE Magazine as one of 10 “Movers and Shakers” in the Baltimore area.

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.
