shirley king

may. 2016

In May 2016, about 23.000 people were at B.B. King Park, in Sabrosa, to watch a tribute concert to the king of the blues.

The protagonist of this concert was his daughter, Shirley King, that played with the Budda Power Blues band and Rui Veloso. Before her performance, Shirley King inaugurated a sculptural replica of the legendary guitar “Lucille”, the inseparable companion of B.B King, from 1949 to his death. This tribute was a huge success promoting Sabrosa and the Douro region on a nationally and international level.
