John Dee Holeman
Mr. John Dee Holeman graced the stage at NC Folk's 2016 Fundraiser at Motorco Music Hall in Durham. And when he played, every eye in the house was on him.
Holeman is among the most widely celebrated of traditional Piedmont musicians. A native of Orange County, North Carolina, Holeman has performed at the National Folk Festival and Carnegie Hall, and has conducted multiple overseas tours--many of which were sponsored by the U.S. State Department--to such faraway locations as Thailand, Africa, Singapore, and Turkey. Now in his 90s, Holeman continues to perform regularly throughout North Carolina. He is featured in the book Music Makers: Portraits and Songs from the Roots of America.
