OBITUARY: Marian Daigler
Long time Atlanta based blues promoter Marian Daigler passed away suddenly on Feb. 24.
Perhaps best recognized for her blues and roots music shows on WRFG, Daigler, a native Georgian, tirelessly supported local and lesser known nationally touring acts. She interviewed them on WRFG to support their local gigs and hosted house parties where they played for tips when booking in area clubs wasn’t available.
She was a fixture at Blind Willie’s for decades, known and respected by the blues community for her kindness, humor, generosity and passion for the music. Marian assisted veterans in the genre as well as younger artists starting to make ripples on the Atlanta scene by getting the word out to her many contacts in and out of the Atlanta Blues Society.
Daigler was scheduled to celebrate her 70th birthday at Blind Willie’s on March 26. That event will now be a remembrance of her life.
