The Earl Scruggs Center

With the support of our Presenting Sponsor the City of Shelby and our Supporting Sponsor HomeTrust Bank the Earl Scruggs Center is excited to announce its next special exhibit, David Holt: Photos, Music & Stories.

July 8, 2017 - January 13, 2018

This exhibit includes over 30 framed black and white portraits of Holt’s many musical mentors and heroes from the 1970s to the early 2000s. In these photos are icons such as Doc Watson (whom David considered his musical father), Etta Baker, Earl Scruggs, and Dolly Norton, as well as musicians who, while not well known, were influential in David’s life.

Artifacts and musical instruments from his personal collection are throughout the exhibit. The “Tree of Life” open back banjo custom made by Bud Soesby and Wade Mainer’s 1953 Gibson are among those on display.
