From the PineCone press release
Born in Orange County, North Carolina in 1929 and celebrating his 80th birthday this year, John Dee Holeman grew up on a small farm and began playing the blues at the age of 14. Though he never met Blind Boy Fuller, Holeman credits Fuller with teaching him to play guitar. He says he learned to play by listening to Fuller's records and by playing with musicians who had learned directly from Fuller. Holeman uses both the Piedmont and Texas guitar styles in his playing.
