Autoharpist John Hollandsworth is a native of Christiansburg, VA. He had his introduction to the autoharp through the playing of his Floyd County grandmother and uncles, and grew up playing informally with family and friends. His autoharp style incorporates both chromatic and diatonic techniques. John started performing with his wife Kathie in the 1980s as a duo, and they have also played in several band formats for concerts and dances. John was the first Mountain Laurel Autoharp Champion in 1991 and has been named Best All-Around Performer at the Galax Old Fiddlers Convention three times. He is an internationally acclaimed teacher and performer, and is the well-respected luthier of Blue Ridge Autoharps. John was inducted into the Autoharp Hall of Fame in 2010.
