Bluegrass Fiddler Tex Logan Hospitalized

Fiddler Tex LoganPrescription Bluegrass and Front Page Bluegrass News has just learned that Famed Bluegrass Fiddler Tex Logan is in the hospital

His daughter Jody writes:

Dad on way via ambulance to Morristown Hospital...Dr. called and said go straight to ER...potassium levels at a bad stage....keep going up.

Prayers please...hope he isn't admitted but I know the level that he is
at is a cause for cardiac issues.

Logan played with Mike Seeger in the late 1950s, with The Lilly Brothers & Don Stover and Bill Monroe in the 1960s, and with Peter Rowan in the 1980s.

He wrote "Christmas Time's A-Coming", a song made popular by Bill Monroe that has been recorded by many performers, including Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Sammy Kershaw, Rhonda Vincent, and Patty Loveless, among others; and "Diamond Joe" recorded by Bob Dylan. In 1969, Logan played fiddle on the Bee Gees' 1969 song "Give Your Best", released on the band's sixth album Odessa.

Of course details of Logan’s health at this time are sketchy but we’ll post more as it becomes available.
