Floyd "Salty" Holmes was a member of the WLS National Barn Dance
back in the 1940's. He was also a one time member of the Prairie Ramblers.
He was said to be a solemn fellow who could get the audience into
spontaneous outbursts of laughter with his comedy talents. He even
composed some of the songs he sang. He had a son, Billy Lee, who attended
Crane Technical High School in Chicago.
