Don’t miss this special afternoon of Piedmont blues featuring the legendary John Dee Holeman.

Holeman is a Durham bluesman who has been awarded a National Heritage Fellowship (1988) by the National Endowment for the Arts and a North Carolina Heritage Award (1994) by the NC Arts Council, and he has been playing the blues for more than 60 years. Though he never met Blind Boy Fuller, Holeman credits Fuller with teaching him to play guitar. He says he learned to play by listening to Fuller’s records and by playing with musicians who had learned directly from Fuller. Holeman uses both Piedmont and Texas guitar styles in his playing.
