Corey Osborn "Let the Music Play Fund" Benefit Concert 

When: 2009
Price: $20

It was a rough winter for the community of musicians on Beale Street. On November 28th, blues-rock guitar phenom Corey Osborn — at age 23, already a longtime stalwart on the strip — lost his life in an automobile accident. Just over a month later, singer Ruby Wilson — who had earned her title "Queen of Beale Street" even if she wasn't, at the time, a regular at any Beale club — suffered a stroke that has kept her from performing this year.

But this week at B.B. King's Blues Club — the stage both Osborn and Wilson have graced many times — one musician's loss will be commemorated in service of another's renewal as a concert in celebration of Osborn's life and music will function as a benefit to assist with Wilson's medical costs.
