Pick Of The Day: Scott Holt

Born in Tennessee, with stops in Texas and Mississippi along the way, Scott Holt took up the guitar at the relatively late age of 19. Once he started playing, though, he didn’t waste any time in developing his chops, and he eventually ended up touring for 10 years with blues great Buddy Guy.
