Quebecois composer / performer Jean-Paul Loyer is very ill at the moment and unlikely to recover. This was a message I received from Peter Jellard:

A quick message to let you know about Jean-Paul. We heard from Camille that he is in hospital in Joliette, in palliative care. She doesn't know how long he will be around, but says that it is a matter of weeks. Sounds like he still has his sense of humor, and is receiving good care.

Jean-Paul is best known for his CD OJNAB: Le Messager and his work with Andre Marchand in Detournement Majeur and Les Freres Labri. He has composed dozens of fantastic tunes on banjo and guitar.
