Wow, how am I going to choose only ten shows – out of 177 – as my top shows of last year? So many of the shows I attended were terrific so narrowing the list to ten is not easy.
There are a number of reasons why Malcolm Holcombe‘s performance at the Extended Play Session for Alternate Root TV was so special, not the least of which is that it was a milestone birthday celebration for me!
I was not familiar with Malcolm prior to this show but went in with an open mind and heart.
“Not quite country, somewhere beyond folk, Holcombe’s music is a kind of blues in motion, mapping backwoods corners of the heart” wrote David Fricke in Rolling Stone Magazine.
