Dave Evans recuperating from heart surgery

Bluegrass balladeer and banjo picker Dave Evans is home recovering from a very serious health scare that required heart surgery at the end of July.

Evans spoke earlier today with Dave Freeman of Rebel Records, and relayed that he had a quintuple bypass that very nearly cost him his life. He told Freeman that the doctors informed him that he had flatlined on the operating table, and had to be revived by the OR staff.

The doctors also installed a pacemaker, and Dave is resting comfortably while he recovers.
