A few weeks ago I received an e-mail saying that I had been refunded for three tickets I had purchased to see the Scottish folk singer and socialist Dick Gaughan in concert. It became clear that Gaughan was suffering from some serious health problems, which he has since clarified to be a suspected stroke. His family and friends and those who know and love his music can only hope that recovery is swift and total. Those who have never had the pleasure of hearing him should hope that he will return to the stage again.
