The fourth annual “For Pete’s Sake” concert, benefiting The Pete Huttlinger Fund for Adult Congenital Cardiac Research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, is set for Feb. 5 at City Winery Nashville.
Huttlinger was a renowned guitarist and composer based in Nashville who, throughout his life and career, dealt with rare complications from a congenitally defective heart. He passed away on Jan. 15, 2016 at the age of 54.
On hand to perform and honor their late friend will be John Oates, Jim Messina, John Cowan, John Berry, Guthrie Trapp, Bryan Sutton, Teea Goans, Jim “Moose” Brown, Christie Lenee, Jack Schneider, Mark Sganga and Don Sampson.
The Pete Huttlinger Fund for Adult Congenital Cardiac Research supports the training and research of cardiologists specializing in the care of adults with congenital heart disease. The fund was created by Huttlinger’s wife, Nashville publicist Erin Morris Huttlinger, and his long-time cardiologist, Dr. Frank Fish.
“This fund was launched not long after Pete passed away,” Erin comments. “So many of his fans followed us through several years of health issues and they were always eager to offer of themselves emotionally and financially. I wanted to create a home where those donations could be directed and put to a very specific use.” She continues, “Pete was an incredibly generous guy and often gave of his time and money. I know that he would want to give back to help further research for treatments of an affliction that plagued him since birth.”
