Richmond Fontaine‘s Willy Vlautin is currently recovering after falling from a horse his spokesperson has said today (March 14).

Vlautin has broken his arm after being thrown from his horse in Scappose last weekend, and has undergone surgery this week and is reportedly “doing much better now.”

Vlautin is due to start a UK and Ireland tour this month, in support of his new novel ‘Northline’ and his doctors believe his injury will heal in time for Willy to play guitar at the spoken word and acoustic shows.


Vlautin’s second book comes with an instrumental CD soundtrack composed and performed by Vlautin and Richmond Fontaine bandmate Paul Brainard and the duo will perform together at the dates.

Their appearances start with a book reading session at the Laugharne Weekend the Laugharne Weekend on March 29, with shows ending at London’s Garage on April 24.

The shows from April 10 -24 will be with Chuck Prophet.
