6th Annual Blues Jam Announced

SNOW HILL — Topping the list of performers on Saturday, March 9 for the 6th Annual Blues Jam at the Old Firehouse in Snow Hill is Chris English.

This year English will bring his band but the crowd will hear plenty of his “Delta style” with his solos. Since the 1960’s, he has refined his lifetime passion for performing the blues by learning all the subtleties that give sound and feeling to his music. His performance will include original music from his three albums as well as traditional “toe-tapping” songs that will get the audience moving.

Also returning to Blues Jam for the sixth year is Mr. “B”, Burley Strand, well-known soul and bluesman from Virginia’s Eastern Shore. Mr. “B” will bring his drummer Robert Buckner, “The Great Unknown”, and Miss “T” on the saxophone.  As in the past Strand, Buckner and Miss “T” will join Mike Armstrong plus Angel and Margo Resto to fill out what is now known as the Snow Hill Blues Jam All-Stars. This group is a great crowd pleaser with lots of energy from Mr. “B”s blues guitar and Margot’s vocals, according to even organizers.

The Blues Jam is sponsored by Snow Hill’s Arts on the River Arts & Entertainment District. Doors open at 6:30 with a cash bar and barbecue available for sale. Tickets are $25 and are available at www.sharpworks.org or at Bishop’s Stock, 202 W. Green St., Snow Hill. For more information, contact Bishop’s Stock at 410-632-3555.
