Steve Reid Foundation pledges support for Arthur Blythe
July 31, 2013
As part of the foundations aims to help musicians in crisis, it has been brought to our attention that a good friend of Steve Reid, the Jazz saxophonist Arthur Blythe needs our help. He recently underwent a serious kidney operation, which affected his ability to walk and swallow foods. He is also struggling with Parkinson’s disease. While he’s slowly regaining strength at a rehabilitation centre in California, he needs financial support to pay bills and to get the help of a good neurologist.
The Steve Reid Foundation is planning a fundraising event with all proceeds going to the Arthur Blythe Fund. More details to come soon. Other fundraising efforts undertaken by the Steve Reid Foundation include the Beat ‘n’ Trail bike ride from London to Croatia.
Every little bit helps.
