John Dee Holeman is 87. He speaks softly. When he picks up his guitar, it’s a different story. John Dee’s brand of blues swings and shuffles to where you have no choice but to stamp your feet or jump up and dance. It’s that way by design. Before his legs retired from dancing, he was known far a wide for his deft buck dancing, a colloquial form of dance that’s the origin of tapping.  John Dee has rhythm in every inch of his body. Check out this track from our Homecoming Revue Show.— Aaron
