Pinetop & Honeyboy To Perform For 4,000 Students
Pinetop & Honeyboy
On November 7, 2008 at 10:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. two of America’s greatest treasures, Blues legends and Grammy Award winners Joe Willie “Pinetop” Perkins, 95, and David “Honeyboy” Edwards, 93, will perform for over 4,000 students as part of The Blue Shoe Legends Program in Dallas, Texas. This event will give students a rare opportunity to glimpse into the past and experience when and how the Blues was born.

“This is the largest event of this kind ever held. At 93 and 95 years of age, we’ve only got one shot at this and the time is now!” Michael Dyson said, 23-year-old Grammy Award winner and co-founder of The Blue Shoe Project.

The Blue Shoe Legends Program, an educational initiative of The Blue Shoe Project, is an exciting live and interactive storyteller performance event that brings legends and high profile artists of the music industry into an educational setting to share their lives, experiences, music and wisdom with students.

Pinetop and Honeyboy received Grammy awards this year for the album Last of the Great Mississippi Delta Bluesmen – Live in Dallas, produced by The Blue Shoe Project.

The Blue Shoe Project is a Texas-based 501 ( c )(3) donor support charitable non-profit organization founded with the mission of educating the coming generations on the importance of Blues music. Since its inception in 2004, over 30,000 students have experienced programs presented by The Blue Shoe Project. On the web at www.BlueShoeProject.org.
