Linda Perhacs cancels UK dates after nasty fall

Bummer news for both Linda Perhacs and the people of Britain: the 70-year-old folk singer has been forced to cancel her string of UK dates due to a nasty fall. Perhacs’ 1970 album Parallelograms is an oft-reissued cult favorite, and Asthmatic Kitty released her followup, The Soul of All Natural Things, earlier this year — 44 years later. Perhacs’ tour was supposed to begin June 1 at London’s Union Chapel. No word on whether dates will be rescheduled; here is her statement:

I apologize deeply to all of you for having to cancel the European Tour, but in mid May, 2014, I took a bad fall which resulted in a return of some of the neck problems I had prior to my neck surgery in 2007. This surgery was to protect my neck and the movement of my arms, etc by placing a titanium implant for neck support, donor bone and fusions. It is a surgery designed primarily for athletes, especially football players.

Get well soon, Linda! Show ‘em hell, and other stuff paternal 1950s football coaches say to young players in coming-of-age Hollywood sports movies.

06.03.14 - Liverpool, UK - Leaf
