Tony Rice back next week

This week was set to be the start of an east coast tour by Peter Rowan and Tony Rice, in support of their Rounder CD, Quartet. Folks checking on these dates have been seeing cancellation notices, mentioning a recent injury to Tony Rice.

It turns out that Tony hurt his back in a fall at his home, and is undergoing traction therapy this week to try and alleviate the pain and allow his back to heal.
