North Carolina, singer-songwriter Malcolm Holcombe was in-studio with Dennis Frost during Cuz’s Corner and he’s set to make his Charlotte Folk Society debut performance at the next monthly Gathering on Friday, February 12th. The music gets underway at 7:30pm in the beautiful listening room of the Great Aunt Stella Center, 926 Elizabeth Avenue, in the edge of Uptown Charlotte. Doors open at 7 PM.
“Malcolm is highly regarded and recognized by contemporaries in Americana music including Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle. An “emotionally captivating” performer (Isthmus), Holcombe has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Richard Thompson, John Hammond, Leon Russell, Wilco, and Shelby Lynne.
Malcolm flirted with an official music career. But his stunning debut album made for Geffen Records was abruptly shelved, producing melodrama that only exacerbated Malcolm’s drinking and depression. With deep faith in God and a commitment to his art, Holcombe repaired both himself and his career. Be prepared to hear his remarkable journey of recovery and discovery in his songwriting and in the passion of his performance.” CFS
Here’s the recording from the February 3rd Cuz’s Corner show, hosted by Dennis Frost. This Americana Roots Music show airs every Wednesday from 7-10pm via Charlotte Community Radio.
Charlotte Folk Society Gatherings are presented, in part, with funding by the Arts & Science Council, the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art. We are pleased to have Charlotte Community Radio as our media sponsor this season.
