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.
BLUES HEAVEN FOUNDATION'S mission is to help artists and musicians obtain what is rightfully theirs, and to educate both adults and children on the history of the Blues and the business of music. To achieve this mission, we have successfully executed several programs, including The Muddy Water's and Willie Dixon Scholarships, Music Clinics, Music in the Garden/Record Row Festival, and Emergency Assistance, and are looking to establish additional programs in the near future. In order to help maintain the existence of BLUES HEAVEN FOUNDATION, and to realize the dream of its founder, WILLIE DIXON, your support is imperative.
