Brown Bird has canceled their upcoming tour dates due to singer/multi-instrumentalist David Lamb’s unknown illness. The folk duo was in the midst of a North American tour that is set to continue through August.
A statement released by the band said that Lamb was admitted to a hospital in Houston “with complaints of fatigue and shortness of breath.” Blood tests then showed Lamb was severely anemic with an extremely low red blood cell count. Since admittance, Lamb has undergone several successful blood transfusions, but the cause of his illness remains undetermined.
While the band remains optimistic, tour dates through May 24 have been canceled and more cancellations are expected after Lamb’s diagnosis.
