A date has been set for Portland’s eighth annual Healing the Healthcare Blues Festival featuring ‘Boogie Cat’ Norman Sylvester and an all-star lineup.
The concert supports the universal healthcare movement and the local organization backing it, Health Care for All-Oregon. It will be held Saturday, April 27 from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the North Portland Eagles Lodge 7611 N. Exeter and Lombard.
The party will bring out some of Portland’s best blues musicians, including Sylvester, Bayou Boyz, the LaRhonda Steele band, Bloco Alegria, and Richard Arnold to name a few.
Musicians know all too well that people are still facing medical bankruptcy, suffering serious illnesses and even dying due to the lack of good healthcare coverage, Sylvester said.
