Oh No! Harry Belafonte Cancels Kate Wolf Festival Appearance


Well, this stinks. The Kate Wolf Music Festival announced less than an hour ago on their Facebook page that singer and activist Harry Belafonte, scheduled to appear at the festival on Saturday, June 25, has canceled his performance due to illness. Their post is below:

We are sad to announce that due to illness, Harry Belafonte will not be performing Saturday night. Our thoughts and prayers are with him. In his place will be Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Little Anthony and the Imperials.

Just last week, Belafonte gave me an interview concerning the Kate Wolf Festival and his upcoming conversation there. At the time, he sounded like he was in good spirits and he spoke eloquently with me about everything from his views on pop culture to his work with the nonprofit organization Sankofa and his love for the North Bay wine country. We wish him a speedy recovery.
