A TRIBUTE TO CHUCK
Like the rest of the world, our family was saddened to hear of Chuck Berry’s passing. Nearly sixty years ago, Mr. Berry played a groundbreaking set at Newport and to celebrate his innovative and immeasurable impact on the world of music and culture, we had been working with Mr. Berry’s family and record label to celebrate his 90th birthday at the fort this summer. With the sudden news of his passing we have decided to turn this celebration into a collaborative tribute honoring the father of rock n’ roll. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones, and we look forward to sharing the joy of his music with all of you on Sunday July 30.
