Help us to raise a monument on Mr Robert Belfour’s grave.
In memory of Robert “Wolfman” Belfour
As his music will be engraved in our hearts, his name must remain on a monument.
Robert Belfour passed away on February the 24th this year, and was buried on March the 7th. Given the soil types in Mississippi it is customary to allow the soil to settle on a grave for about 6 months before setting a monument, which gives us time to raise the required funds.
“The Wolfman”: the album
Recorded live in Switzerland at the Blues Rules Festival, May the 31st, 2013, this recording represents the last tour of Robert Belfour in Europe.
This album will be edited in a short number of copies, just for this crowdfunding, only to raise money for Robert Belfour’s memorial, and will never be commercialized in the future.
Take advantage of this unique chance to get your copy and, on the same move, raise that monument with us.
Robert “Wolfman” Belfour (September 11, 1940 – February 24, 2015) was an American blues musician. He was born in Red Banks, Mississippi. His father, Grant Belfour taught him the guitar at a young age and he continued his tutelage in the blues from musicians Otha Turner, R.L. Burnside, and Junior Kimbrough. Kimbrough, in particular, had a profound influence on him. His music is deeply rooted in Mississippi Hill Country traditions, in contrast to those of delta blues. His playing is characterized by a deeply percussive attack and alternate tunings.
For 6 years the North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic and the Blues Rules Crissier Festival have been collaborated to promote and share the North Mississippi Hill Country Blues.
So we thought it was our duty to join our efforts to give a memorial to Mr Robert Belfour.
