Musician and host of Riverwalk JazzDavid Holt will not appear at this weekend’s Pennington Folk Festival in Princeton. Holt will instead attend the funeral of friend and flat-picking legend Doc Watson, who passed away this week. Festival organizers say 2010 festival favorite Bobby Bare will step in for Holt.
David Holt is a musician, storyteller, historian, and a TV and radio host. If you listen to WKMS on Sunday’s, you may have heard him as the host of Riverwalk Jazz. But, as a musician in his own right, Holt is a four-time Grammy winner, and he’s a renowned storyteller and music historian. He will be entertaining at the Pennington Folk Festival in Princeton next weekend. Gary Pitts spoke with him about his upcoming performance. Click here for more information about the festival.
