URBANA — All-star local musicians will perform a full shift of music Sunday to honor the late blues artist Mary Clark.

Among the acts thus far planning to come are Kilborn Alley, the first act, followed by Dorothy Martirano, Kristen Johns, Megan Johns, Candy Foster, Paul Sabuco & Friends, Impalas and Joni Dreyer and Groove Avenue.
 
There’s an all-star jam starting at 7 p.m. with a lineup so far of Kevin Colravy, Popeye Curtsinger, Crazy Johnny, Brendan Gamble, Dave Cooper, Catfish Evans, Kathy Harden and more.

Raffle tickets will be sold through the day, with the drawing about 7 p.m.

The money raised from the benefit is for Mary Clark's final expenses.
