SNOW HILL — This year’s Snow Hill Blues Jam on Saturday, March 14 is a tribute to the late Burley Strand, who passed away in November of 2014.
Lovingly known as “Mr. B.,” he was a driving force of the Snow Hill All Stars whose guitar and voice graced the stage every year since the Snow Hill Blues Jam began in 2008. This year, the Snow Hill All Stars have banded together to honor his spirit and his unique brand of music. The lineup includes Chris English on guitar, Angel Resto on bass, Miss T on sax, Margot Resto on vocals and congas and Robert “Unknown Drummer” Buckner on drums.
“Each one of us has many years of great memories of sharing the stage with Mr. B. that we bring to this special night,” said Margot Resto, also in the All Stars lineup since its beginning. “The Snow Hill All Stars will be honoring Mr. B. by playing with our hearts, to keep his spirit and the Blues alive.”
