February 7, 2014: BC Black History Awareness Society organized a Leon Bibb Concert at Government House, hosted by the Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. Leon was accompanied by his friend and pianist of 30 years, Bill Sample. The event was also a celebration of Leon’s 92nd Birthday.
“We did this fantastic show. It couldn’t have been better planned. We played in Victoria at Government House, just he and I. We were piped in no less and the Lieutenant-Governor introduced us and Leon sang his ass off in front of a huge crowd ...” Bill Sample, long-time friend, pianist, and music producer. Sadly, this event was also Bibb’s last public performance. More
