Aubrey Holt - photo by Ted LehmannAubrey Holt, Indiana bluegrass patriarch and part of the legendary Boys From Indiana, has been admitted to the Veterans Hospital in Cincinnati. He will be treated for congestive heart failure, and to remove fluid from around his heart.

His family says that he has been feeling poorly all this week, and after a trip to the emergency department, he has been admitted for treatment.

It is expected that Holt will only remain in the hospital for a few days, possibly being released on Tuesday.

Recently, Aubrey has been performing with his son, Tony, in the Wildwood Valley Boys.

Let’s hope to hear good news next week, and see a full and quick recovery.
