The Tony Rice Foundation
On 27 Sept. 2013 the BIB mentioned the 'Miracle of Raleigh' - the few minutes at this year's IBMA awards show when, in responding to his inauguration into the IBMA Hall of Fame, Tony Rice was able to recover his speaking voice, and even to hold out hope that he might be on the path back to the outstanding singer that he was twenty years ago.
However, by an irony of fate, arthritis is impairing his even more unique ability as a guitar player, and consequently his earning ability. Read John Lawless's feature on Bluegrass Today - all of it is well worth reading, but especially the news of the Tony Rice Foundation, a benefit campaign launched by Terry and Jeff Pinkham with (at present) a Facebook Page and a PayPal account. Please note also John Lawless's suggestions for benefiting Tony through buying his CDs, DVDs, or autobiography.
