On Friday, February 15th, we received the sad news that long time ETA friend and brother, Kofi Burbridge had passed away after almost two years with heart related issues. It has been our privilege to work with Kofi over the last 20 years as the flutist, pianist, keyboardist, and composer for the Derek Trucks Band and Tedeschi Trucks Band. He will be truly missed by so many.
