WHAT: John Dee Holeman w/ Andy Coates
WHEN: TODAY, Tuesday (3/31), "Bull City Cosmic Hoedown" 6-7:30 pm (guest segment: circa 7pm)
WHERE: WXDU 88.7 FM or live stream with iTunes at www.wxdu.org

More from Dave:
"John Dee Holeman is a North Carolina treasure and has won National Heritage Fellowship awards and NC Heritage Awards over the years for his guitar playing and singing. His style on guitar combines the Piedmont Blues sound (which developed in Durham in the '30s and '40s) with touches of Texas blues and R&B. You've likely seen him playing outdoors at street festivals, at the Eno River, or in clubs. He knows a million tunes, and tonight I hope he'll play a few for us.

John Dee Holeman turns 80 years young this weekend and there will be a birthday party for him Saturday night at Broad Street Cafe with a host of other blues artists on hand to help celebrate. Come on out if you can:
