Acoustic Stage is moving!...watch here for details soon!
Thanks to you all for your support of Acoustic Stage. The support that we have received from our members since we returned in 2013 has been humbling. Many people have generously given their time and energy to our effort. We have seen steady growth in our attendance over the past 3 years and our mission to bring quality music to our stage culminated in two sold out concerts with Darrell Scott last week.
We treasure our current location and now have a connection to it with our history there. We hoped it would become a Firemen's Kitchen-like room that provided an intimate setting for musicians and music lovers to come together. It has certainly lived up to that expectation and has served us well.
Unfortunately, a part-time venue will not support occupying our space 365 days a year. It is with heavy hearts that we must announce this past weeks' performances will be the last at this location. The decision to move is not easy or sudden. Acoustic Stage has never been a full-time music venue. Our goal has always been to periodically present concerts that are special and one-of-a-kind.
We are honored to be part of the musical legacy that was started by Fast Company and Ten Years After. We are extremely grateful to Joe Hill and his family for hosting Acoustic Stage for the past three years.
Sometimes doors close and others open with new opportunities. We look forward to sharing our new plans in the coming weeks and we will have an update soon.
Thank you again for your support of Acoustic Stage!

Malcolm Holcombe returns to Acoustic Stage for his now annual August performance!
Holcombe, a Weaverville native, has mesmerized audiences around the world with his one of a kind style. Highly regarded and recognized by his contemporaries, including Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle, he delivers the songs that he has crafted from his own life's struggles with a gravely voice, lightning fast finger-picking and guitar slapping. An extremely physical performer, he may stomp, growl and twist his body to coax his songs out.
Since 2004 he has been a prolific writer; those who are familiar with his back story now see a man who has been redeemed by faith and love and is willing to share the story of his recovery through his songs on stage. Malcolm must be experienced live! With every performance, he delivers his songs with a unique and unpredictable brilliance!
Malcolm recently released his most recent album Another Black Hole proving that his song writing is as powerful as ever. Another Black Hole features Holcombe's rasping vocals and bright percussive guitar accentuating his insightful lyrics. "It is Malcolm's perception of the world that make his songs hit you like a gunpowder blast. His gruff and tough delivery is a primordial power full of grit, spit and anthropomorphic expression", says Producer Ray Kennedy.
Malcolm will appear solo for this concert.
