This year's concert will also recognize our volunteers who have helped us over the last three years. We would not be able to continue the mission of the Fund without the support of our dedicated volunteers.

Sean Costello was most recently recognized for his posthumously released Sean's Blues: A Memorial Retrospective, which was nominated for Best Historical Album in the 2010 Blues Music Awards, and Best Contemporary Blues Recording in the 2010 Blues Blast Music Awards.

Also, We Can Get Together, the last CD released by Sean, was nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album by the BMAs in 2009.  His legacy includes 6 CDs beginning with Call the Cops at age 17 and multiple international awards.

The Sean Costello Memorial Fund for Bipolar Research is uniquely focused on the needs of musicians with bipolar disorder. The Fund supports and conducts research on bipolar disorder and creativity while promoting awareness, providing education, and serving as a resource for these musicians and their support systems in order to foster acceptance, functioning and health.
