Malcolm Holcombe
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Malcolm Holcombe on Thursday May 18, 2017 at The Albert S George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. Born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, Malcolm 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]..."
Malcolm Holcombe grew up in western North Carolina, home to some of the planets oldest mountains and some of Americas deepest musical traditions. Radio and TV fueled Malcolms musical passions as a kid, and music became even more important after he lost both his parents relatively young. He toured with bands and landed in Nashville, where he took up an inconspicuous station at the back of the house  the very back - at Douglas Corner, one of the citys best singer/songwriter venues. Stories began to circulate about the mysterious dishwasher with the subterranean voice and oracle-like talent. Sadly so did stories of wildly inconsistent behavior  profound sweetness crossed by bouts of stunning abrasiveness. He flirted with an official music career. But his stunning debut album made for Geffen Records was abruptly shelved, producing melodrama that only exacerbated Malcolms drinking and depression. A business that once had a place for complicated genius turned its back on him, and he teetered near the edge. Moving back to the North Carolina hills proved a powerful tonic. Holcombe let in help where before hed pushed it away. With deep faith in God and a commitment to his art, Holcombe repaired himself and his career. And thats a pretty good nod to the effect of hearing Holcombe sing. If youve not seen him in a live setting, this is what you have to do. His presence is spooky and timeless, as one imagines it was like to see Son House or Leadbelly. No emotional stone is left unturned. While you plan for this important experience, collect Malcolm Holcombe albums... He is cryptic, demanding, polarizing, bold, passionate and free, a combination badly needed in our time of infinite trivia. Hes even more interesting for having made a remarkable journey of recovery and discovery.
