David Holt traveled to remote mountain communities in a quest to learn old-time banjo playing. He found not only folk music, but mountain wisdom and tall tales. He plays ten acoustic instruments, has released numerous recordings and won a Grammy with Doc Watson in 2002 for "Legacy," a three-CD collection. His most recent CD, “Live and Kickin' at the National Storytelling Festival” also has been nominated for a Grammy.
