Malcolm Holcombe

07:00 pm to 09:00 pm
The Players Pub

Malcolm Holcombe by Alan Kaufman

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, and speak directly to you. Listening to them, you are befriended.

The PB&J’s

05:00 pm to 07:00 pm
The Players Pub

Someone is 70! Happy Birthday to Joyce!!

What’s a BBB? Why it’s a Big Birthday Bash on Friday, April 27 from 5-7 p.m. Happy Hour at Players Pub. The PBJs will be playing and it’s my way of acclimating myself to another decade of life. It’s sobering (to be so old) but I want to enter it having fun. Our featured musician is Dave Shank. He’s not only great on the drums but he’s going to sing and play the trombone, too! (Not all at once!)

The PB&J Quartet is now calling themselves the PBJs. They’ve added a saxophone player and a drummer. They still play tunes from the Great American Songbook and occasionally venture into tunes from the ’60s. With their mix of instruments you’ll find it easy listening and perfect for dancing. The interesting story behind their name will be told at the show.

Hope to see you there!
