John and Kathie Hollandsworth (Band)


John and Kathie Hollandsworth are natives of Christiansburg, Virginia, and have been performing and teaching since the early 1980's, with a repertoire that includes traditional Appalachian music and its many related styles.

John has been developing his own autoharp style since childhood, when he became familiar with traditional music through playing with relatives and friends. His playing style incorporates both chromatic and diatonic techniques, and he is highly sought after as a workshop leader and classroom teacher of his style and repertoire. In 2010 he was inducted into the Autoharp Hall of Fame. Kathie sings, plays hammered dulcimer and upright bass, and they are popular performers and clinicians, both in the Virginia and North Carolina region and nationally.

Kathie sings and plays hammered dulcimer and upright bass and she has led workshops on those instruments and on traditional song. Together, John and Kathie truly enjoy sharing their Appalachian musical heritage with a wide variety of concert and festival audiences.

They also perform with the old-time dance band Katie & the Bubbatones.
