The primary mission of The Pinetop Perkins Foundation is to provide encouragement and support for youth and young people at the beginning of their musical career (MasterClass Workshop Experience); and help provide care and safety for elderly musicians at the twilight of their career (Pinetop Assistance League).
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization. Your donation will honor Pinetop's memory and help fund our mission.
Pinetop Assistance League (PAL)
We're here to help. Our goal is to provide emergency financial assistance to elderly musicians for medical and living expenses.
If you are in need of financial assistance please see our Pinetop Assistance League (PAL) Page for information.
COVID-19 has become a new term in our everyday lives over the last few weeks. The members of the Pinetop Perkins Foundation Board of Directors have been following this developing and ever changing situation closely. Our top priority is the safety and welfare of our community - fans, supporters, musicians, instructors and parents. We will continue to monitor and follow the recommendations of the CDC and will post any changes to our event schedule as soon as is practical.
Our hearts go out to the countless blues musicians and music fans who at the moment are restricted from making a living and enjoying live blues. We hope you can support these musicians during these next few weeks. We will continue to have updates at our website and on our Facebook page. We dream of greater days ahead - when our community will once again gather in song and celebration.
Pinetop Perkins Masterclass Workshop Experience Cancelled
In light of the current events, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the in-person Pinetop Perkins Masterclass Workshop Experience in Clarksdale, Mississippi until next year, June of 2021. But as a gift in these troubled times, we will be offering a Virtual Workshop to the current registered attendees on the same week of the 2020 workshop, in hopes of engaging our students with our faculty of instructors this summer.
All current registrations will be rolled over to June of 2021. If there is a conflict and you need to discuss that with our team, please reach out to us. Virtual Workshop details will be released soon.
Keep playing, stay safe, and be well.
