Tucson Loses Beloved Artist

Mark Holdaway and Stefan George
Mark Holdaway and Stefan George, 2008.

August 17, 2015, Tucson lost beloved singer-songwriter and amazing guitarist Stefan George.

He had a gift for the blues, and he loved to jam. I loved playing with Stefan.

Right around the time that Stefan passed away, I was developing the Bluesy E tuning for the new Kalimbula, and so I wrote Blues for Stefan.

Dear Stefan, you were loved by many. Thank you for your music, which will continue to move our hearts and endure for a long time. —Mark
