James KingThose regular Harrietville festival goers will remember James King and his talented band’s visit here in 2004.

Julie King (James’ wife) has just advised that James King will be out of commission for a while as he battles Deep Vein Thrombosis. James is currently under the care of a vascular surgeon with his left leg is blocked from his groin to his ankle with collapsed veins.

Julie has called on the bluegrass community to pray for James’ recovery.

Here’s an update to James King’s condition thanks to his wife Julie:

James was well enough this afternoon for me to check him out of the hospital.  He is still being treated for Acute Deep Vein Thrombosis in addition to gall stones and now with some liver issues. He is home adhering to doctors orders of strict bed rest  with no cell phone calls for a few days. .

If anyone would like to send him a note or card here’s the address:
