Blue Star Connection, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing access and ownership of musical instruments for children and young adults with cancer and other serious challenges as well as providing music therapy departments with instruments, is taking pre-orders of 'The Healers - Live At Knuckleheads,' a live CD/DVD with proceeds raising money for their ongoing efforts.

The ad hoc ensemble The Healers -- Jimmy Hall, former Double Trouble keyboardist Reese Winans, Blues Music Award-winner Samantha Fish, Kate Moss, and Trampled Under Foot members Kris and Danielle Schnebelen -- took the stage in November 2012 to raise money for BSC, playing a show of blues and soul favorites made famous by luminaries like Freddie King, Albert King, Little Milton, Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, and more. Hall, Fish, and Danielle Schnebelen trade up vocal duties and the frontline instrumentalists swap spotlight moments.

The show is being released in a digipak CD/DVD case for $30 with net proceeds again benefitting the organization. The package is being shipped free for all pre-orders and includes a commemorative laminate in addition to the fantastic music from that special night.

I've heard the entire set already and have already vouched for its quality by pre-ordering mine, putting my money where my big mouth is, and was given the privilege and honor of composing liner notes for the set. If great music at a great price for a great cause isn't persuasive enough, that is worth your $30! I kid, of course, but not about the quality of the performances (they were smoking that night!) or the amazing work this organization does. This is one of those great moments in life where you can give and receive so get your pre-order in now and take advantage of the free shipping.
