Columbus, OH Blues for a Cure

  • Blues for a Cure 5226 Columbine Ct Columbus, OH, 43230 United States

The idea behind Sean Carney’s Blues For A Cure was born during a phone call Sean had with his friend Dr. Paul McCarthy, owner of Honeybee Records.  They discussed the notion that Blues music can effect positive change in the world.  They then discussed how to support that notion by raising money for a charity, paying the artists a reasonable wage, and presenting an awesome showcase of live Blues worthy of festival designation. At the time, Sean’s mother was undergoing chemotherapy for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. His younger sister and stepmother are cancer survivors and his piano player, John Popovich, is in remission. The charity was clear. Click here to read full story.

Since inception, concerts and auctions have raised a total of over $100,0000 for many cancer research, education and screening organizations across Ohio and also in support of the Columbus Blues Alliance and Blues Foundation in Memphis, TN.Click here to see a totals breakdown by organization.
