English Presents Sixth Annual Performing Arts Fundraiser Saturday, February 1

Chris EnglishSALISBURY, MD---“The blues is the roots; everything else is the fruits.” – Willie Dixon

Blues musician and Salisbury University Department of Music faculty Chris English presents his sixth annual performing arts fundraiser 7:30 p.m. Saturday, February 1, in the Black Box Theatre of Fulton Hall.

English and his band bring Delta-style blues to Salisbury. Special guests include SU’s African Drum Ensemble.

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 $15, 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.

For more information call 410-543-6385 or visit the SU website at www.salisbury.edu.
