Inspiration: David Holt Plays Mountain Music

This TED episode really takes me back to my roots growing up in the foothills of Tennessee. David Holt's passion for folk music and storytelling is very inspirational! He plays "olde tyme" rhythms, instruments, and lyrics that echo from another era. The sweetness of contrast, melody, timing, exaggeration, anticipation, finesse, staging, etc. in music all apply to the craft of animation. I think the same basic words can describe all art forms (ever heard of the golden mean).
Anyhow, enjoy the performance and check out David's website!!
