Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Partners With Music Maker Relief Foundation

Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is thrilled to partner with the Music Maker Relief Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, to contribute to their endeavors to preserve the musical traditions of the South by directly supporting the musicians who make it, ensuring their voices will not be silenced by poverty and time. Music Maker will give future generations access to their heritage through documentation and performance programs that build knowledge and appreciation of America's musical traditions.

Little Freddie King became part of the Music Maker family in 1998. Since becoming a Music Maker artist, Little Freddie has received glasses and dentures, help with evacuating from New Orleans after Katrina and moving back later, and grants for prescription medicine. Little Freddie was assisted by the New Orleans Musicians Fund. Music Maker has also helped him issue his record "At Home in the New Orleans Musician's Village", and featured him on compilation CDs.

Since their founding in 1994, the Foundation has assisted and partnered with over 300 artists, issued over 150 albums and reached over a million people with live performances in over 40 states and 17 countries around the globe. We are honored to work alongside this compassionate organization in an effort to ensure the continuity of some of the purest and most honest forms of music in American history. We look forward to working with more of the Music Maker Foundation artists in the future.
