My dear friend Jim Rivell Sr. passed away last Wednesday after a courageous battle with cancer. Jim was a banjo icon in the Philadelphia area and in the Mummers community. We were band mates in the Fralinger String Band back in the 1970's and 80's and in more recent years with the Gloucester City String Band. I am going to greatly miss his encouragement and musical wisdom, the many laughs we've shared, and our long talks about string bands, banjos, music and life. And, of course, playing music together. You sir, will be missed. Rest in Peace, my friend.

I have spoken with him several times and purchased a Silver Bell from him last year. A very kind person. Very sad that he has passed.
