Carl Henry fundraiser a success

Gary "Shadowhawk" Ellis reports that a well-attended fundraiser for ailing Detroit musician Carl Henry on Thursday at Scooter's Bar in Flint raised $2,000 to help with Henry's medical expenses.

Henry was not well enough to attend the event, but kept up by viewing photos posted on Facebook, and was able to thank the crowd via a phone call that was broadcast through the PA.

Two other Carl Henry Fund benefits are on the horizon: an Irish music benefit on Aug. 19 at Nancy Whiskey’s in Detroit and a blues music benefit on Aug. 26 at Cooley Lake Inn in Commerce Township.

You can make donations to the Carl Henry Fund on the Detroit Blues Society’s website ( Donations can also be mailed to the Detroit Blues Society, attn. Carl Henry Fund, at P.O. Box 488, Goodrich, MI 48438.
