Nothing But Downhome – Heaven

This week Howling’s joined on the porch by his friend, mentor and walking Blues encyclopaedia, Cliff McKnight from Nothing But The Blues for the first of two special shows in which they play a selection of their favourite music about heaven and hell in aid of The Help Roxi Walk Campaign.

Little Roxi Burnette has recently been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. A condition that affects the muscles in her legs, making them stiff and difficult to move and means she unable to walk. Having entered a scary world of splints, walkers, wheelchairs and muscle relaxants, there has been a ray of hope though. Her parents have learned of pioneering surgery called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) that could transform Roxi’s life. The treatment is not cheap though and costs around £50,000 and the UK Blues community is helping to reach that target.

If you enjoy this show, PLEASE find it in your hearts to make a donation, however small. You can Text a message to 70070 containing Roxi47£x in the body of the text, where x is the amount you would like to donate or use PayPal or Just Giving.

Thanks blues hounds

Cliff ‘n Dick
