Blues News You Can Use!
 An Apology to those Wondering!
  Well, for those who might have noticed they didn't receive their June 23rd newsletter and wondered about what happened, to be honest, I am not sure. Apparently something glitched in the sending process. Was it me missing a step, or the website? Honestly I don't know. Going
forward I will be more attentive in checking for the confirmation email (which didn't come as usual.)
It's absence should have alerted
me to a problem and sent me checking, resulting in a resend. So again, my apologies to the musicians that sent in dates that didn't get promoted. I promise to be more diligent going forward. Of note, last week's edition DID get posted on our website and FB so if you are ever missing your emailed edition, you can always look there to find it.
You will find information this week about an upcoming fundraiser being held to raise funds to support Clare Starr's family. You will also find the article with quick access to some of the area's summer music series and venues. You will also find the continuing article for the weekly Blues History feature from Big Train and the Loco Motives. Read on below for more information and to access these great blues history presentations.
Perhaps you are not seeing your favorite blues artist or venue listed in our calendar? We compile listings from local community calendars for our partner artists and venues throughout the area. Remember, artists and fans alike may send us blues event listings that may not appear in the community calendars. Just email SANDY to share
listings that include performances occurring from next weekend through the following weekend.
It's always important to say, this is YOUR newsletter! Please send questions, information, feedback, and suggestions our way. Just click below to email Sandy.
We appreciate our readers and want
to see your ideas included!

A Worthy Fundraiser
Recently the NWA music community lost a sweet soul with the passing of Clare Starr. Clare helped OBS present one of our early Blues in the Schools events at McNair Middle School in Fayetteville. His creativity and passion will be missed. 
Please consider attending the upcoming fundraiser at George's Majestic Lounge to offer support to Clare's family.
