"This album really was created by the grace of the good Lord and a lot of friends and family that have helped this old boy and his family," singer-songwriter and WNC native Malcolm Holcombe said in a recent interview. He was talking about his newest album, Down the River
— his ninth studio effort. Holcombe is known not only for his consistently thoughtful and gritty take on Americana, but also for being endlessly quotable: "I am just trying to achieve a little step in the ladder of truth," he says. He'll perform at The Altamont Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 30, at 8 p.m. $10/$12. thealtamont.com. Photo by Ray Kennedy
