Bittersweet... but ultimately positive! Good to see him playing again - albeit with one hand, but once they got going, it seemed to me that Jerry was watching Freebo and anticipating the chord changes. It's going to be a long hard road, let's hope he can get a good way along it.  Smiley

Hello All
We have had 2 returns for tomorrow's Jerry Donahue benefit gig in Banbury with The Dylan Project and Fotheringay.
Obviously we want to sell them so please let me know if you can make it and we'll take it from there.
Thank you.

In response to a recent request for news updates on the Fairporters FB page...

Susan Rey - "I see him 3 or 4 times a week. We are still working on getting him walking again. it's a long haul but he's in good spirits."

Kristina Donahue Daly - "There aren’t really going to be a lot of updates as things are kinda the way they are in terms of speech and his right hand. We’re just happy he seems rather content. Sue is helping him regain strength and he’s already made a lot of progress in his right leg. Thanks for checking on him!"

just read about Jerry that Bonnie Raitt has given him an iPad loaded with several speech programs that he’s working with.
