David Holt and the Lightning Bolts
Featuring Josh Goforth, Laura Boosinger, David Cohen and Zeb Holt

Four time Grammy winner David Holt and his kickinâ new band The Lightning Bolts release their debut CD on December 5, 2006. Holtâs driving slide guitar and banjo with this talented group give old-time music a new-time jolt on this self-titled recording.

âI really like this CDâ - Doc Watson

David Holt and the Lightning Bolts start off their debut recording with âThe Titanicâ collected from Bessie Jones of the Georgia Sea Islands and brought to the 21st century with dynamic National steel guitar layered with driving percussion. The traditional âJohnson Boysâ bounces with tune bow, tight a cappella harmony and rhythmic clay drum. The ancient ballad âMy Dearest Dearâ is reborn with tender singing and beautiful original guitar work. One of todayâs most compelling story-songs âShaky Jakeâ with its twist ending leaves audiences cheering. The repertoire is brought up to date with Davidâs rocking original âI Can Do It, Too.â

Over 35 years ago David began collecting and learning old-time mountain music directly from folks like Roy Acuff, Doc Watson and Grandpa Jones. Etta Baker, Big Joe Williams and Merle Watson greatly influenced his unique blues style. In 2002 David was invited to perform at the largest European country music festival in Gstaad, Switzerland. He put together an all-star band The Lightning Bolts to accompany him. Featuring Josh Goforth, Laura Boosinger, David Cohen and Zeb Holt, these inventive North Carolina musicians blend their individual styles and talents to create a distinctive, one-of-a-kind sound.

This music is driving and energetic. The collection of instruments is unique and diverse. The arrangements are ear-catching. The selection of tunes crosses cultures and centuries. Most importantly, the virtuosity of the players is striking. The band members with their wide diversity of ages, styles and solo careers give the Lightning Bolts the spark that keeps their music fresh, fun and fired up.

Sit back and enjoy David Holt and the Lightning Bolts and their old-time music with that new time jolt!
