I knew Sonny had not been very well lately, but this is a sad confirmation.

If Bill Monroe was still with us, he'd want us to really pull for Sonny.

Best wishes to recover Chief!

Here’s hoping and praying he gets well.
I watched this video from ETSU last June and noticed he was maybe a bit off, but that could’ve been just his age. Lincoln was with him to help clarify things.

I have so much enjoyed Sonny for so many years thru his music playing, singing and also in his sharing knowledge and experiences via print and spoken word. Chief, get better. We are all pullin' and praying for you.

So sad to hear. Hope Sonny recovers completely and quickly and gets back to playing banjo and enjoying retirement.

Couldn't say it better. Still remember watching Sonny's every move on the small stage of the Bluegrass Cruise thirty some odd years ago, like it was yesterday. And when they played the Silver Lakes festival in Norco Ca, there was a big telephoto lens snapping pics of Sonny's right hand. Hang in there Sonny. We got your back.
