Shawn Holt has been doing everything he can to preserve his late father’s immense legacy while forging one of his own. The son of Magic Slim, Holt began playing the blues at age 17. After performing with his own band for years, he stepped into his father’s shoes to front The Teardrops as a support act for Johnny Winter one night, and Winter loved the show so much that he asked that Shawn and the Teardrops join him for the remainder of his tour. We can’t think of a better endorsement. Holt will be bringing his Teardrops to New York City’s Terra Blues this month to show audiences that talent is, in fact, hereditary.
