Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings @ SPAC, June, 2011

Super soul singer Sharon Jones – the sparkplug for the band the Dap-Kings – has announced that she has been diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer.

The announcement on the band’s website states, “It is expected that the immediate proposed surgical solution will lead to a full recovery, but because of its invasive and complex nature, will necessitate a rather lengthy convalescence.”

But that means that the band’s has cancelled or postponed all current touring plans, including a scheduled performance at Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival festival being held at Croton Point Park in Croton-On-Hudson on Saturday, June 15.

We send our best wishes to Jones a successful surgery and a speedy recovery…
