Acclaimed Americana singer-songwriter David Olney died while performing on stage at the 30A Folk Fest in Florida. According to fellow musicians, Olney was in the middle of a song when he said, “I’m sorry,” and put his chin to his chest. Musician Scott Miller said on Facebook, "He never dropped his guitar or fell (off) his stool, it was as easy and gentle as he was.” Olney had a loyal following and had recorded over 20 albums. His songs were covered by Emmy Lou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Steve Earle.
