10 N. Fourth Street – Concert of J.W. “Blind” Boone

10 N. Fourth St., is a historic home, once the home of J.W. “Blind” Boone, a blind, black pianist who against all odds was a nationally known musician. He lived from 1864-1927. His home is slated to become a museum.

The notice states the concert will feature Tom Andes playing ‘Blind’ Boone’s music, the CPS 5th grade honor choir, Celestine Hayes, and Linda Dodd singing holiday music and music by ‘Blind’ Boone. The event, the notice states, is sponsored by The ‘Blind’ Boone Heritage Foundation.
