Alison Krauss To Miss Wide Open Bluegrass with Vocal Condition
Vocalist Alison Krauss announced today she will not be performing at next weekend’s Wide Open Bluegrass. Krauss was recently diagnosed with dysphonia, a vocal condition that causes impairment in the ability to produce vocal sounds. Patients with dysphonia typically experience a hoarse, rough voice for an extended period of time.
Krauss was scheduled to perform as a part of a collaboration with Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Bela Fleck, Del McCoury, Tony Rice and Mark Schatz. Per her website, Krauss is expecting a full recovery and is currently undergoing treatment.
