Event Description

Join PineCone and the North Carolina Museum of History for the Music of the Carolinas Series. This months free concert features blues artist John Dee Holeman. John Dee Holeman has been awarded a National Heritage Fellowship (1988) by the National Endowment for the Arts and a North Carolina Heritage Award (1994) by the NC Arts Council. Born in Orange County, North Carolina in 1929, Holeman grew up on a small farm and began playing the blues at the age of 14. Though he never met Blind Boy Fuller, Holeman credits Fuller with teaching him to play guitar. He says he learned to play by listening to Fuller's records and by playing with musicians who had learned directly from Fuller. Holeman uses both the Piedmont and Texas guitar styles in his playing, and he currently works with the Hillsborough-based Music Maker Relief Foundation, which released his album You Got To Lose, You Can’t Win All The Time in 2008.
