As I write this I am convalescing after spending the better part of the first week of September in Florida Hospital in Ormond Beach.
The evening before my big opportunity to open for Maja Gitana at the monthly Central Florida Folk house concert in Orlando at Villa ConRoy, I was stricken with an ugly viral infection of my intestinal tract that left me utterly incapacitated.
Despite my best efforts to overcome it, I finally had to make the dreaded telephone call and tell them there was no way I could honor my commitment to perform.
Things were so bad by Tuesday morning that my wife chauffered me to the Emergency Room where they quickly admitted me.
I’m home now and trying to get my energy back up. Tomorrow starts a new week.
I apoligize to my fans and friends who might’ve made the trip to Villa ConRoy only to find my not there. I take some consolation that at least you were treated to a fantastic show by Maja Gitana. Apologies as well to Sigi Nagys, Barry Brogan, and Roy and Connie Brand for standing you up on such short notice. It was utterly unavoidable and beyond my control, but it still isn’t my style to not honor a commitment.
