Holt and Cabe 2023
Holt and Cabe
Holt & Cabe is a brother duo from Southwest Florida that composes and performs original Americana music. Their unique, tongue-in-cheek story songs take audiences on an acoustic listening journey. Holt (on guitar) and Cabe (on mandolin) have been working together since 2016 and have played on stages across the U.S. Inspired by groups including Homer and Jethro, They Might Be Giants, and Simon & Garfunkel, Holt & Cabe focus on originality, creativity, and musicianship. Their original music has been nominated for New Mexico Music Awards. The duo also recently placed third in a national anthem competition with their heartfelt tune, Freedom Hero, judged by Darius Rucker, Rhiannon Giddens, Jason Isbell, and Genesis Be. In 2017, Holt and Cabe attended their first ever Bluegrass kids camp and fell in love with Bluegrass. Soon after, their family sold their home, and they hit the road. During their three-year cross-country road trip, they attended open mics, music camps, and festivals including the Walnut Valley Festival, the Oklahoma International Bluegrass Festival, MerleFest, and many others. They also learned to play other instruments including harmonica, ukulele, foot tambourine, fiddle, banjo, resonator guitar, accordion, saxophone, and more. They have busked on the streets from Times Square in NYC to Sunset Celebration in Key West. Along the way, they met many new friends, musical instructors, and supporters. In 2020, they found themselves in Florida, which they now call home. Holt & Cabe’s varied experiences inspire their music. Recently, they have performed at MerleFest, at the Will McLean Festival, and at The Florida Folk Festival.
