SUGAR LOAF — Bertoni Gallery will host the fourth annual Bill Perry Day as part of its “Sundays in July” free music festival, held every Sunday in July at the Bertoni Gallery Sculpture Garden on Kings Highway in Sugar Loaf on Sunday, July 31, from 1 to 5 p.m. The day will be filled with performances by Barry Adleman, Evan Teatum, Reddan Brothers Band, Dan Brother Band, and a special performance by the “Bill Perry All Stars,” featuring many musicians who toured with Perry, including: Dean Scala, Papa John, Jermy Baum, Gil Cruz, Eric Winter and guests. Perry was an internationally acclaimed blues-rock guitarist who lived in the Chester area most of his life, until his death in 2007. Bertoni Gallery and Barry Adleman from Music For Humanity have joined forces to present the fourth Music For Humanity Bill Perry Scholarship Award in his memory. The scholarship is awarded to a local high school senior who has shown excellence in the field of music, and to encourage the recipients’ ongoing pursuit of their music education. The scholarship recipient (as well as two other Music For Humanity Scholarship Award Winners) will be the guests of honor on this day, and will be presented the award during the ceremony in the sculpture garden. This event will start at 12 p.m. This event is a fundraiser for the scholarship program.
