My friends at Alligator Records have announced that Grammy winning harmonica great James Cotton will be postponing and rescheduling a number of appearances because of hip replacement surgery. He will be off the road from Nov. 10 through mid-January 2012.
In a message to his many fans around the world, Cotton said, "I'm sorry to have to disappoint my fans by postponing and rescheduling some dates, but I need to get this taken care of so I can be back at full force early next year. You can expect me to be dancing across the stage next time you see me."
Cotton's recent Alligator CD, "Giant," received a Grammy nomination.
