Veteran Illustrator and Bluegrass Musician John Holder returns to the village he grew up, ​Badwell Ash​ in Mid-Suffolk, England;​ reconnecting with family and friends from the past and encountering stories of growing up and growing old in Suffolk.

Having left the village to pursue a formal education at Cambridge School of Art at just 16, and begin a life and career that would see him travel all over the world, ​Old Suffolk Boys​ provides an insight into an area of Eastern England, as well as man who is returning to the area – entrenched with pickup trucks, a dash of far-right politics and a deep-rooted love of country music, that will surely resonate with audiences.
