Star-Studded Benefit Show for Aubrey Holt !

Image635712424169775042A benefit show for Aubrey Holt, formerly of the Boys From Indiana and the Wildwood Valley Boys, has been planned for Sunday, August 9, 2015.

The show will feature a star-studded line-up, including Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers, The Grascals, Feller and Hill, The Wildwood Valley Boys, and Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper.

The benefit show will take place at Turfway Park, 7500 Turfway Rd, Florence, KY 41015.

Aubrey Holt has a history in bluegrass music that spans nearly 60 years. He has become a legendary songwriter, having songs recorded by many top names in the bluegrass business. Aubrey toured with his own band, the Boys From Indiana, for over 20 years and has spent the past 10 years with the Wildwood Valley Boys, until February, 2015.

Since March 2015, Aubrey has had multiple stays in the hospital and recently returned home from a nursing home to finish recovering from complications caused from kidney failure and congestive heart failure. He continues to recover, but the medical bills continue to pile up, as Aubrey has not been able to work on the road and do what he truly loves. 

A medical expense fund has been set up for those who cannot attend the benefit show and still want to contribute. The link below will give access to donations that will go directly to Aubrey:

Holt  has since been in and out of the hospital with complications, including congestive heart failure and kidney failure. He began dialysis treatments, about 3 weeks ago and will continue to receive treatments 3 times per week for the forseeable future.

He is a veteran of the US Navy and some of the hospital stay and treatments are covered through the VA and Medicare. However, the co-pay amounts for the dialysis treatments alone are projected to be in excess of $2000 per year.

Being a lifetime musician leaves Holt and his family with little retirement to live on, aside from occasional royalty checks from his BMI songwriting account. Not being able to perform onstage, since February, also leaves him and his family with no performing income.
