Natalie’s presents a special evening of music featuring Malcolm Holcombe, along with Adam and Chris Carroll.
Born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC, Holcombe is highly regarded and recognized by contemporaries in Americana music, including Emmylou Harris, Wilco, Steve Earle, and Lucinda Williams. An “emotionally captivating” performer, Holcombe has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Richard Thompson, John Hammond, Leon Russell, Wilco, Shelby Lynne, Cat Power, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
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. Malcolm is touring to promote his 15th studio album, Pretty Little Troubles, produced by Darrell Scott and Brian Brinkerhoff..
The scope of Adam Carroll’s songwriting influence was recognized in 2016 when “Highway Prayer: A Tribute to Adam Carroll” was released, featuring esteemed writers/performers like Hayes Carll, James McMurtry, Slaid Cleaves, and Terri Hendrix covering Carroll-penned tunes. It has garnered attention from publications like Texas Monthly and Rolling Stone, the latter which noted that Carroll “is talented beyond his years.”
Adam’s musical biography is as winding as the stories in his songs, full of far-away places and close-to-home meditations that encompass a career built on thousands of miles on the road with his partner in life and music, Chris Carroll, accolades of all kinds, and still the burning desire to simply…write the next song. With tours crisscrossing the USA, Canada and Europe, Carroll is currently focusing on performances as a duo with Chris Carroll, Canadian singer-songwriter and Texas transplant. Chris’s music does a little bit of genre hopping, pulling in influences from all over the map, but her music is still deep within the Americana roots and has the ability to draw in an audience.
