Malcolm Holcombe at 641rpm June 4
Singer-songwriter Malcolm Holcombe returns to downtown Boone for a June 4 concert at 641rpm.
Born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, Holcombe is being recognized by the contemporary U.S and European folk/americana community as a performer of national stature, and an uncommonly unique guitarist/vocalist about whom Rolling Stone Magazine says: "Haunted country, acoustic blues and rugged folk all meet [here]..."
A new Holcombe CD, For the Mission Baby, was released on September 29, 2009. Recorded May 2009 in Nashville, Tenn., at Room and Board studios, this CD heralds a return to Holcombe's folk and country-blues roots.
Along with Holcombe's distinctive vocal and guitar performance, Tim O'Brien (mandolin, mandola, fiddle, bouzouki), Jared Tyler (dobro), David Roe (bass) and Lynn Williams (drums, percussion) round out the ensemble, with Grammy award winner Ray Kennedy (Delbert McClinton, Steve Earle) producing and engineering.
For the Mission Baby is comprised of 12 new and previously unrecorded songs, and proudly takes its rightful place in the growing legacy of Holcombe's estimable musical catalog.
Holcombe will perform Friday, June 4, starting at 9 p.m. at 641rpm, located at 641 W. King St. in downtown Boone. Cover costs $8.
