There was sad news for the Madison Blues community last week, as we lost both Finis Tasby and Michael Coleman. Finis’ death was no surprise, as he’s been battling cancer for some time now. Michael Coleman had a heart attack while on dialysis; he was known to have chronic illness for some time, but had continued to play a lot around Madison. The video of him below was recorded here at the Knuckle Down Saloon. WORT DJ Art Schuna remembers Coleman leading the band for one of Delmark’s blues brunches they did every Sunday at Jazz Record Mart during the Chicago Blues Festival.
