To create this American form of music, English uses vintage guitars from the 1930s to replicate the sound and feeling of the blues he has studied and loves. He puts that sound to good use in his class “Blues: the Roots of Rock and Roll,” which he created and teaches at SU.

Tickets are $12, benefiting the Department of Music Performing Arts Fund. Checks should be made payable to the Salisbury University Foundation, Inc., with “Performing Arts Fund” in the memo line.
