CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Musicians Need You - Preserve Our Southern Roots
John Dee Holeman
There's still time - give now and your support is doubled
Have you heard? Generous supporters have offered to match any gift you make to Music Maker before June 30th - up to $80,000, and only if we hit that goal. Thanks to all your support so far, we're over halfway there! But we can't make it all the way without you.  

If you have already given, we thank you! Please, be an advocate for Music Maker and forward this email to a friend - someone who may not know about all we do to preserve the music that shaped America's culture. If you haven't yet given, this is a perfect time.  

You'll help artists like Robert Lee Coleman, who greatly needs a Sustenance Grant for new dentures - his health depends on it.

You'll help artists like Ben Payton, who is working with the Musical Development program to record an album, get booked across the country and in his new home state of North Carolina, to ensure he has an income in his elder years.

You'll help students, like those at Orange Charter School, meet, learn from and perform with artists like Ironing Board Sam - increasing their appreciation for Southern Roots music and educating them about our musical heritage.  

We cannot provide these programs without your support - you are all that stands between our artists, our Southern Roots, and obscurity. Please give today.
