One of the Americana world's most revered contemporary songwriters, Western North Carolina's own Malcolm Holcombe is back with a new collection of wonderful stories, Pitiful Blues. His songs, his quips, his insights on life, are positively priceless. He returns to WNCW for a lively, live interview Thursday, and then a performance in Asheville on Saturday night. Just what should we expect? My favorite quote of his sheds some light: "I try to give ’em my show as best as I can, and to come across with as much truth and honesty as I can muster up. If you’re going to eat a peanut butter sandwich, just go ahead and put both hands on there and just chow down."
