Bermuda Day Grand Marshal 2012 – Celebrating Hospitality Through The Ages
Sandra (Powell) Butterfield started her musical and dancing career in the early 1970s when she joined her husband, Bryan Butterfield, as a dancer and steel pan player with the Bermuda Authentic Limbo Dancers. This group danced in all the major hotels in Bermuda and also in the United States. Sandra, better known as “Sandy” continues to play pan with various musicians and had the pleasure on three occasion to travel with the Bermuda Strollers to play for the Jerry Lewis Telethon in Plymouth, Mass, USA.
Sandy attended Mount Saint Agnes and was born and raised in Spanish Point. She is one of seven children, a mother of two, and grandmother of seven. Her teenage years were very involved with Girl Guides and Sea Rangers.
Sandy Butterfield is also the Director of the charity organization Focus Counselling Service and is an internationally certified drug counsellor. Sandy has worked in this profession for the past 26 years and has received several awards for her work in the area of addiction.
Sandy is still an avid dancer socially and enjoys playing her steel pan for weddings, conventions, private parties, either as a solo artist or with a trio. Sandy Butterfield is featured in the Bermuda Hall of Fame.
