We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. This week, director of the Festival For The Eno Greg Bell talks John Dee Holeman, who has performed at the festival all 40 years it's been held.

Stick around after the episode to hear the premiere of a brand new recording of Holeman's classic 'Chapel Hill Boogie.' The newly married 90 year old recently worked up an updated version of the song for a new album that will be released on August 2nd.

"He's the very embodiment of what our festival represents..."
