How do you get more than 200 music acts to perform for free? Tell them it benefits HAAM, therefore Austin musicians. The massive annual HAAM Benefit Day is more proof that our city values the arts. With the future of health care coverage ever in a political flux nationally, it's nice to know the nonprofit Health Alliance for Austin Musicians has been there since 2005 to assure working musicians the care they need and deserve. Reenie Harwood Collins, HAAM's executive director since 2013, leads the organization with skill, kindness, and a "hammy" sense of humor that is refreshing.
