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.
