Help Paul Oscher get well and finish his book

I’m Catarina Sigerfoos.
I am on the Development Council for HAAM- The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, and I serve HOME- Housing Opportunities for Musicians and Entertainers, as a member of the board of directors.
I have a degree as a Master of Artist Management from Berklee College of Music. 
I grew up in a family of working musicians and I’m well aware of artists’ needs. 
I’m honored to help musician Paul Oscher raise funds to finish his book about his life in The Blues. The money raised will go to upkeep and living expenses, transcribing his digital recordings of stories only he can tell, the cost of artist illustrations and the costs of leasing photographs.
Paul was a member of the Great Muddy Waters Blues Band, and lived in Muddy’s home in Chicago’s south side; sharing the basement with fabled blues pianist Otis Spann. He hit the “Chitlin’ Cicuit” and traveled the world with Muddy performing at major concert venues and festivals. This was at a time when The Blues was still an organic part of black culture.
His book is going to be distinctive- open it anywhere and you will find a cool story illustrated by a drawing or photograph.
Paul publishes a newsletter once a month with one or two stories from his book. If you want to get the newsletter and keep abreast of his work on the book, please sign up on Paul’s website:
Donations are very important for this book to be finished, Please donate. Everyone who has given will get recognition in the book. Those giving $500 or more, will receive a personally signed rare photograph and a plus-1 invitation to the book release party in Austin, Texas.
