New York Times - John Dee Holeman

"Maybe it was the form that John Dee Holeman’s frail fingers took when wrapped around his guitar. Perhaps it was the passion in his soft voice as he recounted growing up in North Carolina, learning to play the blues while tending to the family tobacco farm. Jimmy Williams is not certain what captivated him first, but after speaking to Mr. Holeman about his love for his guitar and his daily struggles to survive, Mr. Williams knew he wanted to tell the guitarist’s story."
