We have also added an important new twist to our annual Blues For Food Drive. A representative from the Hart Fund will be on hand to do basic blood pressure testing etc for any musician who wants to get checked out. The Blues Foundation out of Memphis has in recent years established the HART fund (Handy Artists Relief Trust) for blues musicians and their families in financial need due to a broad range of health concerns. The fund provides for accost, chronic and preventive medical and dental care as well as funeral and burial expenses. Blues For Food organizers feel this is a a great way to increase awareness for blues musicians who may need assistance while also letting blues fans know where they can assist in helping blues musicians in need.
