Whenever we learn of a hand injury to a musician, it’s always a matter of concern. When it’s a legend like Bobby Hicks, who not only helped establish what excellence in bluegrass fiddle is all about over his long career, but is also approaching 75 years of age, it is of even greater immediate gravity.
Bobby fell and broke the ring finger of his left hand badly enough to require surgery earlier this month, but says that he recovering nicely at home.
“I’m doing OK I guess. I’ll just have to refrain from playing double and triple stops for awhile.“
Let’s hope Bobby is back in top form soon!
