The world is incontestably a richer place because of WILLIE DIXON’S musical contributions alone. Believing that his work was not yet finished, Dixon devoted much of his time in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to the organization he founded, BLUES HEAVEN FOUNDATION. His vision was to allow the echoes of great American Blues to continue to develop, to encourage a new generation of blues greats and to provide for the on-going welfare of senior Blues musicians. 

EXTENDED until May 25th!

Many thanks to Consul General Herbert Quelle of the Consulate General Federal Republic of Germany in Chicago, 
AFBF Poster designer Günther Kieser, and Rheinhard Lorenz of L + R Archive in Eisenach.  The AFBF Exhibit is a wonderful addition to Willie Dixon’s Blues Heaven Foundation.  Vielen Dank!
