Thread Name: CD: Doc Watson, David Holt: LEGACY
Subject: RE: BS: Doc Watson,David Holt, LEGACY
David Holt moved to these Carolina mountains back in 1969 in order to learn and preserve the old mountain music which abounds here. His career has encompassed about every media.He hosted his own tv show out of Nashville, became a good friend and support of National Public TV and Radio. He has helped set up various programs at Warren Wilson College(Thats where Swannanoa Gathering is held).

I can't remember all of his accompishments, but the two which I am most impressed by are; David moved here and became one of us instead of trying to change things.

He became close friends with Doc Watson and the whole Watson Family.

David is very likable and a tremendous musician. His wife Ginny gave him a great compliment.She told me that"David is a very good man". I consider him a friend and can agree with Ginny.

David's bio etc. can be found at High Windy Jim
