Wayne Taylor recovering after illness prevents UK tour

The Bluegrass Blog reported two days ago that Wayne Taylor (USA) is making a good recovery from surgery.

The surgery was essential to remedy a ruptured colon: a serious and acute condition which prevented Taylor and his band Appaloosa from travelling to Britain for a tour that was scheduled to include an appearance as headline act at the Scottish Bluegrass Association's 25th Guildtown Bluegrass Music Festival (29 July-1 Aug.).

The SBA website reports that Wayne Taylor & Appaloosa have been invited to appear at next year's Guildtown festival, and that Monogram (CZ) and Lilly of the West (BG) have already been booked for Guildtown 2012.
