- "Good Times"
- "You Don't Come See Me Anymore"
- "Gamblin' House"
From deep in the Appalachia of Weaverville, N.C., comes the authentic country blues of Malcolm Holcombe. He performs songs from his eighth release since 1985, Gamblin' House, which was produced by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Ray Kennedy. The album gave the long-obscure songwriter his critical due, as it brims with distinctly Appalachian flair.
Holcombe's rough-hewn vocals convey aching loneliness on the heart-wrenching "You Don't Come to See Me Anymore." Multi-instrumentalist (and past Mountain Stage guest) Ed Snodderly accompanies on dobro.
