Award-winning old-time musicians David Holt and Josh Goforth will perform a Mountain Music concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, in Thomas Auditorium on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College as part of Keeping the Fires Burning, a series of the Center for Cultural Preservation.
Recognized as one of the nation’s foremost folk musicians and storytellers, Holt has been collecting and performing the music of the old-time Southern mountaineers for 35 years. A Madison County native, Goforth is a Grammy Award nominee and is descended from many of the old-timers that Holt learned from in the late 1960s in Lonesome Mountain. For David, combining forces with Josh is coming full circle.
“Josh is one of the finest musicians in North Carolina and is helping bring the music that is his birthright into the 21st century,” says Holt, a four-time Grammy winner. “Our show is about folk traditions that are exploding with creative energy and fun.”
