Malcolm Holcombe

"Not quite country, somewhere beyond folk, Holcombe's music is
a kind of blues in motion,mapping backwoods corners of the heart."

-David Fricke Rolling Stone Magazine

Videos are from Mr.Holcombe's performance at European Street
in Jacksonville Florida on January 17th 2008.

"You're up there and you're looking out at either your saving grace or the lynch mob, one or the other. People pay money and it's hard-earned, and it's your job to go for the throat and deliver the fucking goods." -Malcolm Holcombe
