A performer with a history in the world of country and mountain music, Holt has received multiple Grammy awards, most recently for his three-CD project with Appalachian musician Doc Watson. Here Holt spins tales with practiced ease at the National Storytelling Festival. Weaving quirky memories of childhood and early musical adventures with anecdotes about his search for authentic mountain music, the family-friendly Holt is a warm and all-Texan American. If you like harmless fun and down-home instrumentation--washboards, spoons, and "bones"--this mini-hootenanny is for you. Holt has known some of the true greats of his day and is evolving into an American treasure himself. D.J.B.
