Snow Hill Blues Jam brings ‘best of blues’ for its 7th year
Snow Hill–The Snow Hill Blues Jam will bring the “best of the blues” to Green Street in Snow Hill for its seventh year.
The opening act at the Old Firehouse on Saturday, March 15, will be Washington D.C. musician Dave Chappell.
For the last several years, Chappell has won the Washington Area Music Awards (WAMMIES) for Musician of the Year, Rock Instrumentalist of the Year and Roots Rock Instrumentalist of the Year.
He has performed with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends Jerry Lee Lewis, Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, Percy Sledge, Johnny Johnson, and guitar wizard Danny Gatton.
Chappell will perform as “Dave Chappell and His So-Called Friends.” The other performance of the evening brings back “Mr. B and the Snow Hill Blues Jam All-Stars,” who first debuted at the 2007 Winter Blues Jam.
With vocals by Margot Resto, Mr. B brings everyone to the dance floor. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with barbecue, beer and wine available for sale.
There will also be a silent auction to raise funds for Snow Hill’s Arts & Entertainment District’s downtown summer and fall music program.
Will-call tickets are $25 and are on sale at www.sharpworks.org. On Feb. 7 and March 7 tickets will be sold at Bishop’s Stock during First Friday hours. Call 410-632-3555 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
