Sonny Osborne suffers stroke – recovering at home

Sonny Osborne, giant of bluegrass banjo, one half of the iconic Osborne Brothers, and our faithful Friday correspondent, has announced the suspension of his Ask Sonny Anything column at Bluegrass Today for the time being, due to his declining health.

Sonny suffered a stroke on August 16 and has been recuperating at home, but at age 84 it has taken a great toll on him.

We all hope and pray that Sonny will snap back from this and be able to join us again each week to answer your questions at Bluegrass Today. In the meantime, we will continue to run encore editions of previous installments.

Hang in there, Chief!
