In 2012 Music Maker accomplished so much with your support. Boo Hanks went on tour with Dom Flemons to promote their collaborative album that crossed generational lines. Ironing Board Sam was named Living Blues Comeback Artist of the Year, and we were able to provide Precious Bryant with a safe mobile home.
Gigs booked in the USA are up over 75% – we have been working hard to ensure artists have performance opportunities, so they may earn an income and share their talents with audiences.
News of Essie Mae Brooks’ crumbling roof was met with so much support from Music Maker members, and we are pleased to announce that we can now provide Essie with a new roof in early 2013. (And we’ve already got the ball rolling!)
Thanks to your continued support, 2012 was a great year – and 2013 will be even better! Thank you for everything you do to keep the music alive and Know Your Roots!
