Hamilton's Ronnie Copple Passes


It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Hamilton musician Ronnie Copple, who died on March 6, 2019.  Ronnie was a veteran artist who worked with the legendary King Biscuit Boy, Jack de Keyzer and many others. He was a familiar face at the Blues With a Feeling fundraisers where he'd play as people were coming in to the venue. Our condolences to his family, friends and fans.

Check out this wonderful article from his former bandmate Doug Carter!
