Keller Williams has shared the sad news that his father has passed on.

“My Dad passed away yesterday,” Williams wrote on Oct. 22. “I’m going to hang out with my Mom and let Horseshoes and Hand Grenades fill in for me in Madison and Minneapolis this weekend. Thanks for understanding my absence. Kw.”

As noted, fans in Madison, Wisc. (Oct. 22) and Minneapolis, Minn. (Oct. 23) can either attend the shows with Horseshoes and Hand Grenades at the helm, or “If you would like a refund, please reach out to your point of purchase.”

A number of jam scene regulars also shared their condolences, with Yonder Mountain String Band writing, “Sending all the love your way, Keller. So sorry to hear brother.”

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong echoed the sentiment, writing, “Sending love your way!”
