Healing Blues CDs Go on Sale Online at TheHealingBlues.org; Third Concert Scheduled

"Copies of The Healing Blues Project's CD of blues songs now can be purchased online at TheHealingBlues.org.

Also, the project is sponsoring a third benefit concert, 2-9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 12, at Ziggy's in Winston-Salem (map). Admission is $10 at the door.

Musicians for Sunday's performance include The BillyFolks,
Kris Ferris, House Of Dues, the Martha Bassett Trio, the Sonic Prophets, the Jack King/Dave Cecil Duo and the
Healing Blues Band.

Proceeds from both CD sales, at $15 per copy, and the concert benefit the Interactive Resource Center, a nonprofit Greensboro day center that serves homeless people.

The Healing Blues Project was created by Ted Efremoff, an assistant professor of art at Greensboro College, and Dave Fox, a professor of music there.

The project pairs local homeless people -- "storytellers" -- with area musicians to turn the storytellers' lives into blues songs. Those songs have been recorded on the CD now for sale.

Two previous concerts, Sept. 25 at Greensboro's Blind Tiger nightclub and Oct. 5 at Greensboro College, also raised money for the IRC.

For more information, contact Efremoff at ted.efremoff@greensboro.edu or Fox at foxd@greensboro.edu.
