In The Healing Blues Project faculty and students from Greensboro College are teaming with area musicians to work with local storytellers who are clients of the Interactive Resource Center struggling with issues including homelessness and post-traumatic stress disorder to turn their stories into blues songs.
Storytellers express their challenges to participating songwriters. Songwriters then collaborate with the storyteller to write and perform a song that will be included on The Healing Blues CD, crediting both the collaborators with the creation of the song.
Project proceeds will benefit Greensboro's Interactive Resource Center as well as the storytellers who are clients of the IRC. The IRC is an innovative day resource center for people experiencing homelessness.
The "Healing Blues" CD release celebration concert will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5, at Gail Brower Huggins Performance Center, Odell Building, Greensboro College. The concert will feature Lawyers, Guns, and Money; the Greensboro College Gospel Choir under the direction of GC alumnus Jamar Tyree; The Fairlanes; plus members of The Healing Blues team, including Kristy Jackson, Neil Clegg, Jon Epstein, Sam Frazier, and more.
