David Holt is a musician, storyteller, artist, historian and radio and television host who has collected and performed the songs and stories of the Blue Ridge Mountains for more than forty years. This exhibit includes over 30 framed black and white portraits of Holt’s musical mentors and heroes from the 1970s to the early 2000s. In these photos are icons such as Doc Watson (whom David considered his musical father), Etta Baker, Earl Scruggs, and Tommy Jarrell, as well as musicians who, while not well known, were influential in David’s life. Artifacts and musical instruments from his personal collection are throughout the exhibit.

See this exhibit from January 6th through March 16th during normal Museum hours – Tuesdays & Wednesdays 10am-5pm, Thursdays 10am-8pm and Fridays & Saturdays 10am-8pm
