On behalf of the Burse family and the Little Pitcher Project,  the Mt. Zion Memorial Fund  is proud to announce the dedication of Charlie Burse's Headstone. 
The event will feature a long list of noted heavyweights in the Memphis music world, all of whom have reached out to express their desire to come out and pay their respects to a giant of the Jug Band world.  Many of those individuals have asked us not to announce their attendance; therefore, the lineup and schedule is only a glimpse at the delights that are in store for all who attend this special event,
