Terry Holland

Dave Bresnen, chairman of the BBMA, sends the sad news that one of the central figures of the UK bluegrass scene, Terry Holland, banjo picker and organiser of the annual Tel-Fest, died in hospital early on the morning of Christmas Day.

Terry's marriage to Janet Churchill featured on the cover of British Bluegrass News #37 (spring 2006) with a two-page article by Gill Harrison, 'Bluegrass wedding of the year'. Terry's website remains a rich source of instrument history and information.
