Re: “RIP, Jonathan Holden

Jonathan was a generous man who passionately loved music. His expansive knowledge of it's historical roots helped bring an astounding range of musicians to our humble town and taught us so much. Indigo and I worked as volunteers with Rhythm and Roots for the past couple of years and were treated to many wonderfully expressive musical performances.

He shared our deep appreciation of the amazing talent on display and we often basked in the joy and exhilaration of these unique and unforgettable experiences. We'll never forget the huge knowing smile on his face as he watched an amazing lead guitar riff or heard the sheer poetry of a lyric. He heard every subtle thing that was played and could remember it all afterwards and discuss it in depth with me, savoring the memories as much as I did.

He was gracious and kind to his volunteers. He never hesitated to make us feel welcome in the company of even the most famous musicians, whether it be inviting us to sell their CDs, take tickets, work the green room or operate the stage lighting to ensure they had everything they needed to do their best. After the Pat Metheny Orchestrion show at the Fox theater and learning he'd sold just enough tickets to cover his costs, he smiled and said he'd done it for the love of the music and that was enough for him.

I think Jonathan would agree with Frank Zappa, who said:

Information is not knowledge
Knowledge is not Wisdom
Wisdom is not truth
Truth is not beauty
Beauty is not love
Love is not music
Music is the best

We will never forget you.
