Malcolm Holcombe
Malcolm Holcombe
Malcolm Holcombe is possessed by a singular sort of solitary genius that, like the novelist William Faulkner, is yet the voice of an entire region – the South--and even of a generation, though somehow transcendent of it, timeless. If true greatness moves from the particular to the universal, his music speaks for all of humanity while remaining entirely his own.

A North Carolina son of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Holcombe belongs to a tradition of bardic singer-songwriters that includes such legends as Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, Gurf Morlix and David Olney. He is an acclaimed contemporary of Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle and has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Richard Thompson, John Hammond, and Leon Russell. Yet Holcombe stands apart, his soul-stirring lyrics are hill country high poetry, the music pure back roads. His musicianship is uncanny, like no other, as though he had invented the guitar.

In a very real sense he is a latter day Elizabethan poet troubadour of barrooms, ragged towns and coal miner shacks. His intimate, poignantly etched lyrics invite you in, sit you down, speak directly to you. Listening to them, you are befriended.

Someone once said if Tom Sawyer had grown up to be Woody Guthrie, the result would be Chuck Johnson “The Charlyhorse”. He draws his stories from the lore of his southern culture and true life experiences. Chuck’s warm whiskey vocals, and dry wit bring the stories of “The Charlyhorse” alive, and bring the audience becomes a part of a huge family gathering where favorite relatives telltales and spin down home yarns that make for a fantastic evening.
