John Dee Holeman

When: Fri., Jan. 27, 8:45 p.m. 2012

Influenced by the piedmont style of Blind Boy Fuller, octogenarian Orange County native John Dee Holeman has been singing and playing the blues since the early '40s. Holeman has since incorporated the electricity of Texas blues into his repertoire, and his weathered wail works regardless of whether he's plugged in, alternately conjuring the feel of a lively juke joint or a casual back porch set. Traditionally-minded Raleigh blues and folk guitarist Andy Coats sits in with Holeman for this show. Preceding the show is a free performance by the Duke Street Dogs, a Durham quartet whose multitude of instruments creates an alchemy that spans idioms. —Spencer Griffith
