Baltimore Memphis Gold Benefit on March 16

From an email received from Annapolis based Chesapeake Music Guide

Memphis Gold Update!
If you didn't already know, Memphis Gold suffered a broken back after a 30ft fall while performing his day job of tree removal. An operation last week inserted titanium rods into his spine to stabilize the area that suffered damage from his 30' fall. He has a long and tough road of rehab ahead. He is in good sprits and appreciates all the good thoughts from fans & friends. He knows he is lucky to be alive. At this time he does not have feeling from the back of his calves down through his feet and it is too early to tell the extent of the damage and how much movement he will re-acquire. He can hold & play a guitar and has been writing some new songs. How about Out on a Limb?
The Baltimore Blues Society and Nadine Rae have coordinated a benefit on his behalf to be held at the Fish Head Cantina in New Canton on Sunday March 16 from 3pm - 11pm. Several top performers have donated their time to perform such as Memphis Gold Band, Charles "Big Daddy" Stallings, Tommy Lepson, Bobby Parker, Nadine Rae, Acme Blues and more!"
