Roots/Folk Music 14/1/10

Malcombe Holcombe

It is almost a year since Malcolm Holcombe graced a local stage, but he makes a welcome return with shows at Rathfriland’s Bronte Music Club tomorrow and at the Black Box in Belfast on Sunday.

The Appalachian performer has released another critically-acclaimed album, For the Mission Baby — falling somewhere between mountain blues, dark country and folk — and his Belfast gig is part of the Out To Lunch Arts Festival. Other festival attractions include former Riverdance musician and All-Ireland fiddle and concertina Champion Niamh Ni Charra and Downpatrick’s Brigid O’Neill, both of whom will perform at the Black Box.
