Jonathan Holden, 12/29/51 – 1/17/12
If you’ve attended Tucson musical events over the past 15 years chances are you’ve experienced the passion of Jonathan Holden. Many people are feeling the loss of Jonathan, who was taken from us so suddenly on January 17, 2012. A long-time Tucsonan, he first came to town in 1970 to attend the University of Arizona and continued to make his musical mark in Tucson by helping launch community radio station KXCI. He proceeded on the path he loved as he formed the Rhythm & Roots Concert Series in the mid-nineties, which continues as his legacy.
