I've asked around town and haven't heard anything.  I assume that as soon as something is planed that it will show up on the Grafton Blues Association web page.

Hi all.....sorry it's been awhile.  I was actually diagnosed with breast cancer in July then had a double mastectomy at the end of September.  Mid-October, I made this very rough video of taking Blind Blake's stone to the cemetery.  Enjoy!

HELP PARAMOUNTSHOME BEFORE THE GRAMMYS....
In 2004, Netherlands author Alex van der Tuuk and I decided that there needed to be a website containing as much information as possible on Paramount Records as possible. So we volunteered thousands of hours of our time to make this vital information available online for the entire world. In 2006 we won the Wisconsin Historical Society Website Award for our archives. As you may know, there is increasing international interest in the recordings made in Grafton, WI. The Paramount Box Set produced by Jack White 's label is up for 2 grammy awards.....which means more and more people around the world (including reporters) are hungry for more about Paramount. If you go to the website, you can see that it is EXTREMELY outdated. We would love to have it overhauled. We found the right person to do this at a substantially reduced cost. But neither of us have the discrectionary income to do this. After all, it was a labor of love from the beginning. If you agree that http://paramountshome.org could use some tidying up, we are asking that small donations be sent via PayPal to angelam@northshoreacademyofthearts.org We can definitely credit those who are willing to help patron the site! If you aren't able to give, if you could help us share this with the worldwide blues community, we would appreciate it! Thank you! --- Angie and Alex
