Jason Buie Fundraiser

Raised by 33 people in 26 days
On March 22 the Canadian blues community has recently learned the sad news about the passing of Vancouver Island guitarist Jason Buie when he was only 47.

Buie was known for his support of other blues musicians, and his philanthropy. He co-founded the White Rock Blues Society in 2007 in Vancouver and moved back to Victoria in 2011 to raise his children as a single parent.  

In January, Mr. Buie was awarded the Maple Blues Award for New Artist of the Year. His epic on-stage selfie was one of the evening's highlights. His long-time career as a blues artist, as well as his positive attitude and generous spirit, will be remembered by many. 

In memoriam of Jason Buie, The Toronto Blues Society would like to lead this online fundraiser. All proceeds will be forwarded to Chris Buie for the Trust Fund being created for Jason’s 3 children and their future education needs. TBS will continue to collect online donations through here until the end of April.

A fundraiser concert was held on April 6 at Hugh's Room Live as well by Toronto Blues Society. The names contributing to our amazing line-up including Suzie Vinnick, Jenie Thai, Gary Kendall, Mark Stafford, Terry Wilkins ( Sinners Choir ), Bucky Berger, Raha Javanfar (from Bad Luck Woman & Her Misfortunes ), Dan McKinnon, Lance Anderson, Andrew Scott, and Brian Blain gave a heartfelt pose on stage at the big finale of the night.

Rest in Peace Jason Buie. We thank you for your music and extensive contribution to Canadian blues.
