Music Scholarship Honors Bluesman Bill Perry’s
We started a music scholarship in honor of a dear friend who passed several years ago. The music scholarship helps a local high school student with thier college education and supports their love for music.
The name of the scholarship is Music for Humanity Bill Perry Scholarship Fund. Bill Perry was a bluesman who played amazing guitar and wrote many blues songs. He was also a peaceful human being that always encouraged young kids in the field of music.
Robert Finstad was so inspired the first time he heard Bill that he picked up a harmanica with the goal of someday playing with Bill Perry. He achieved his goal and continues to be inspired by his memory.
We hope to carry on Bill Perry's legacy through the music scholarship here in Sugar Loaf, NY.
