David Holt & Josh Goforth

David Holt and Josh Goforth

David Holt and Josh Goforth join together to bring the joy and spirit of old time mountain music and stories to life. They combine the virtuosic sounds of guitar, banjo, fiddle, slide guitar, mandolin with a world of exciting rhythm instruments. Josh is descended from many of the old-timers David learned from in the late 1960s in Lonesome Mountain, NC. Audiences of all ages are treated to a show exploding with creative energy, fun and amazing musicianship.

David Holt is a four-time Grammy Award winner and exciting performer on stage, radio and television. North Carolina audiences know him from his popular long-running PBS FOLKWAYS series. David is recognized as one of the nation’s foremost folk musicians and storytellers. For 35 years he has been collecting and performing the music of the old time Southern mountaineers. His passion for traditional music and culture has fueled a successful performing and recording career.

A performance at Josh Goforth’s middle school by Sheila Kay Adams caused him to start thinking about the musical heritage of his native Madison County. Over the next few years he learned to play at least ten different instruments by ear, learning from such local masters as the great mountain fiddler Arvil Freeman. After high school he went to East Tennessee State University to study music education, and to be a part of ETSU’s famous Bluegrass and Country Music Program. In 2000, he played fiddle for the movie Songcatcher, both onscreen and on the soundtrack. He has toured extensively with a variety of ensembles, including the ETSU bluegrass band, with David Holt and Laura Boosinger, and with several bluegrass bands including Appalachian Trail, the Josh Goforth Trio, and Josh Goforth and the New Direction. Josh has also shared stages with Ricky Skaggs, Bryan Sutton, The Yonder Mountain String Band, and The Steep Canyon Rangers.   


The Burnett Sisters Band 

The Burnette Sisters Band 

Ranging from ages 12 to 22, the Burnett Sisters Band consists of five members who create a unique blend of energetic music in folk, old country, and bluegrass traditions. Inspired by other family bands, the four sisters began singing and playing together as a gospel quartet at local venues and churches in their early youth. Currently performing professionally as a five-piece string band at events and festivals across the United States, The Burnett Sisters Band has established the name of a highly entertaining, engaging, and enthralling group of musicians driven by haunting sibling harmony vocals. The band’s sense of humor and professionalism on stage adds to their captivating performance, as they continue to astound audiences of all ages. Products of the very successful JAM (Junior Appalachian Musicians) program, the siblings strive to carry on oldtime and bluegrass traditions, while providing their own characteristic renditions of classic favorites and originals. The Burnett Sisters Band looks forward to sharing their music with you!
