(The giggling sound of a child in the background was his grandson unexpectedly running around in the room. It is rather sweet.)

Re: John Prine hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms

From Fiona Prine's Facebook: This is John’s 8th day in ICU . He is receiving excellent medical care and being treated with kindness and compassion by the entire team looking after him day and night.

Re: John Prine hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms

A hint of hopeful news today, as John's wife, Fiona, has tweeted that his condition is now stable, though he remains in the ICU. Also, she has successfully recovered from her own (milder) case of COVID.

John Prine hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms

I really hope John pulls through this. He is a brilliant songwriter, and by all accounts is an all-around decent human being. John Prine and Leonard Cohen are the only artists that have compelled me by their music to travel far and wide to attend concerts. I had the serendipitous good fortune to mee...

Ticket gone. It went to the first person who told me that they wanted to go and would take it if I gave it for free. Being my niece helped her negotiating power.

Re: MONTREAL: TICKETS, LINKS AND PASSWORD

The waiting room on the evenko site is open and I'm in line. I'm new to this so maybe I missed something but I didn't need a password to get in line, but I'm not buying a VIP package. I believe the evenko presale is separate from the forum presale, and probably with a different allotment of tickets.
