Excerpt From Offbeat Magazine:

John Dee Holeman learned to play Piedmont Blues listening to Blind Boy Fuller songs like “Step It Up And Go.” He moved to Durham in 1954 and took a job at Liggett and Myers Tobacco Company. On weekends he played music at private functions and house parties, often in the company of musicians who had learned first-hand from Blues greats like Brownie McGhee, Sonny Terry, and the Reverend Gary Davis. Now in his 80s, Holeman continues to perform regularly throughout North Carolina.
