We heard this morning from our friend Tim White, host of the PBS television series Song Of The Mountains, with some sad news about an iconic bluegrass performer from southwestern Virginia.
Larry has been on dialysis three days a week for the past couple of years as well as having to be on oxygen 24/7. I spoke with Debbie Larson (Larry’s long time friend and caregiver) today, and Larry has dialysis site problems and double pneumonia. He was admitted to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital several days ago in Roanoke, VA and is there now.
Larry is seriously ill but is showing some improvement as of yesterday.”
Tim said that fans and friends can send cards and well wishes to Larry at:
1910 West Lee Highway
Wytheville, VA 24382
Let’s hope to hear some good news from Larry soon.
