Festival Encore: Applachian Stories & Songs with David Holt & Josh Goforth - 7:30 p.m. ET

David Holt and Josh Goforth bring the joy and spirit of old time mountain music and stories to life. Between them, they play guitar, banjo, fiddle, slide guitar, mandolin, and rhythm instruments. Audiences of all ages will enjoy this show that demonstrates the pair's creative energy, excellent musicianship, and their own brand of toe-tapping fun. Come along as we revisit some of our favorite footage from the 2020 National Storytelling Festival, filmed on location in Asheville, North Carolina.

Josh Goforth was already playing piano at four years old, but it was his 6th grade experience seeing Sheila Kay Adams that inspired his interest in his musical heritage. Master of nearly 20 instruments and best-known for his fiddling, Goforth is a highly accomplished old-time, bluegrass, and swing musician. His credits include playing for the soundtrack and movie, Songcatcher, and a Grammy nomination with David Holt. He has performed in every U.S. state and abroad, including at Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.
“Josh Goforth is a super star in waiting. He shows the same promise I saw in Ricky Skaggs and Vince Gill in the 70s.” – Hugh Sturgill, producer

David is a four-time Grammy Award winning musician, storyteller, artist, historian, and radio and television host, who, for more than 45 years, has collected and performed the songs and stories of the Blue Ridge Mountains. He plays ten acoustic instruments, including banjo, slide guitar, harmonica, bones, and spoons. Holt is a long-time host of several public television shows including David Holt’s State of Music, which airs nationally and offers an in-depth look at the music and personalities of some of America’s great roots music artists. Holt was featured in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou. In 2011, he was awarded the Uncle Dave Macon Heritage Award for presenting and preserving old-time mountain music and in 2016, he was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame. Holt is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award.
