Documentary is expected to air on UNC-TV and PBS

Documentary filmmaker Will McIntyre ’76 (background) focuses his camera lens on musician David Holt on the stage of the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center in November. McIntyre led a team that included several WCU faculty, staff and students who recorded “David Holt’s State of Music – Live,” a stage version of the like-named public TV show hosted by Holt. In addition to Holt, four of the featured acts from the TV series performed: Balsam Range, Josh Goforth, the Branchettes and Rhiannon Giddens, who was joined by Jason Sypher on bass and multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Dirk Powell. McIntyre and his wife, Deni, are now at work editing shots from multiple cameras into a documentary that is expected to air on UNC-TV and PBS.
