In Memory: Ed Kopala

Ed Kopala: In Memory, The Twelfth Fret (2023)

Ed Kopala In Memory - The Twelfth Fret

It is with deep sadness that we share the passing of a dear friend, musician and colleague, Ed Kopala.

Ed ran the Twelfth Fret Music School for over twenty years and was an important part in our day to day activities. Beyond that to every musician that just heard or had the chance to play with him he was a very special guitarist.

In the words of his dear friend drummer Peter Griffin, 

“To all who had the pleasure to know him, and those who had the good fortune to share the stage with him, you understand what a wonderful person he was. Humble, kind, loyal, generous, loving, knowledgeable and devoted are but a few qualities that I have seen in Ed. We shared many musical moments over the years, and every time he made me grateful to be doing it with him.”

He will be missed by all.
