About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

One Response to 2 Songs by Roscoe Holcomb

  1. He has been revered by many banjo players he was a idol of Pete Seager "Man in his own right" as well as many others. He was a very simple man who was poor and penny less when one day asked god for a way to make a little bit of money.. In 4 months he learned several songs and was soon on his way to making a bit of money to survive. Very humble man check his song out "LIttle birdie" and "Sally Ann" great stuff. He has made it to the Smithsonian as a national folk here. Visit the Strictly Hardly Bluegrass festival to see one of the similar legends who may be gone like Roscoe which is Doc Ralph Stanley we lost Doc Watson already and I fear Ralph will be next.
