Big John T Bone Little has promised to continue playing music as long as he is blessed with good health and able.
The musician, who turns 93 in November, said some of his children and grandchildren would continue his legacy of giving joy to his fans through his music.
Big John T Bone Little was speaking to Mosaic Edition at the DVD Release Party of the documentary – The Guy From Niagara.
He has played across North America with great musicians including late BB King.
Ayo Adewumi said the inspiration behind the documentary came after he met Big John T Bone Little at the birthday party of late Wilma Morrison.
The 88th birthday party of late Wilma Morrison was a memorable event that brought members of the community to the historic Nathaniel Dett Memorial Chapel, BME church, Niagara Falls.
Mosaic Edition online February 28, 2017, wrote “Big John T Bone Little, a Canadian music legend performed at the after service concert as a donation to help the historic church and also in honor of his friend, Wilma Morrison.
Big John T Bone Little was born in Niagara Falls and attended the BME church as early as age six.”
According to The Canadian Encyclopedia the Underground Railroad was a secret network of abolitionists (people who wanted to abolish slavery).
Late Wilma Morrison would be remembered for her dedication in telling the story of the Underground Railroad. Ayo Adewumi produced the documentary of late Wilma Morrison, “Wilma, The story of a Black Canadian.”
Wilma – The story of a Black Canadian is shown across Canada and Internationally particularly during the Black History Month.
Ayo Adewumi decided to produce – The Guy From Niagara after the successful completion of the documentary – Wilma, The story of a Black Canadian.
The inspiration for the DVD came out of demand, according to the producer.
He wanted to get the story directly from the legendary musician of Niagara and not posthumously.
