I would like to thank all of you who sent emails, cards, and
letters wishing me speedy recovery from my May 28 boating accident.
I AM on the right road, but it is taking time. I'm walking, slowly
and with a cane, driving to physical therapy, playing piano...but I
don't feel I'll be ready to play my July gigs, or even the ones in
August. You can only imagine how much I will miss playing those
So now I'm aiming for the three Labor Day weekend gigs, and
the rest of the fall dates. I also fully intend to be at Latitude 18
in St Thomas next winter.
Thanks again, folks, and I sure hope to be fiddling for you
again before too long!
Ain't it great to be alive!

Folks, the Fiddler had a boating accident Saturday, the 27th of May in Fall
River, MA. He was helicoptered to the hospital in Providence, RI, where he spent
9 days. He's now in physical therapy in St. Johnsville, NY. Despite his
injuries, he expects a full recovery. Check the schedule for cancelled
gigs. Updates will be forthcoming.
