Fundraising page for Aubrey Holt

Aubrey Holt circa 1986We’ve posted several times of late about the health issues Aubrey Holt has experienced this past year. He has been suffering kidney problems and has trouble getting around since a lengthy hospital stay affected his legs. Aubrey is currently doing rehab in a nursing facility in Batesville, Indiana.

Holt has given pretty much his whole life to bluegrass music, touring extensively with The Boys From Indiana, and more recently with his son Tony and The Wildwood Valley Boys. Now he could use some of that love turned back his way.

At this point, Aubrey is unable to be considered for a kidney transplant, as he is still experiencing heart problems as well. He is facing some time in rehab, and medical bills are starting to pile up. Fortunately, he has some benefits through the Veterans Administration from his time in the US Navy, and Medicare, but co-pays for dialysis and other treatments are beyond what his savings can bear.

As his nephew Tom Feller put it on a GiveForward page which is accepting donations for Aubrey…

“As you might have figured out by now, being a lifetime musician leaves Aubrey and his family with little retirement to live on, aside from occasional royalty checks from his BMI songwriting account. Not being able to perform onstage, since February, also leaves him and his family with no performing income.”

Please consider a donation if you can.

Personal notes and cards can be sent to the following address…

8999 East County Rd 575 N
Milan, IN 47031

… and donations to his medical fund can be submitted online, or by using the widget below.



Any donations will be deeply appreciated.
