We have learned that popular bluegrass singer and band leader, James King, has been hospitalized near his home in Danville, Virginia. He is suffering from Deep Vein Thrombosis and awaiting a consult from a vascular surgeon before treatment is determined.
His wife, Julie, tells us that the veins in James’ left leg are blocked from his groin to his ankle, and some have collapsed. The doctors also fear there is gall bladder involvement.
Julie says that James will be laid up for a bit, and will surely miss shows booked this weekend and possibly beyond.
We will update as further information is available.
