Nappy Brown Needs Your Support!

Click to visit www.blindpigrecords.com
Blind Pig recording artist Nappy Brown, one of the first R&B stars in the mid-50s and one of the last classic Blues shouters, has been hospitalized in Charlotte, North Carolina, for over a month now.

The Rhythm and Blues pioneer has been enjoying a heady career resurgence since the release of his CD Long Time Coming last September, culminating in two recent Blues Music Award nominations and a show-stealing performance at the recent BMA awards ceremony.

His summer tour, including a number of festival dates, has been canceled due to his illness. In the meantime, Chuck Jackson and other board members of the Rhythm & Blues Foundation have been very supportive during this difficult time.

It is uncertain when he will be released and doctors view his condition as serious. This extended stay in the hospital is a lonely and trying time for Nappy. If you would like to send get-well cards or pass on your appreciation you may send to: Napolean Culp, c/o Carolinas Medical Center, 1000 Blythe Boulevard, Charlotte, NC 28203
