February is our Month of HART, and we ask each of our affiliated blues societies located within the United States to host a HART Fund benefit in their community. US blues artists are often under or uninsured, and the HART Fund is here to help them when they often most need it by offering direct financial support for medical, dental, vision, hearing, and/or mental health needs. We also ensure that blues musicians receive dignified funerals at end of life by providing resources for their families related to their burials. And of course, our health screenings at the IBC and other blues events are often the only healthcare that blues musicians receive, and all of it is offered at no expense to them.
The following blues societies and organizations have committed to holding Day of HART fundraisers:
