Live Music – Mark Stuart – Nashville Folk, Blues, Country and Rock

PLEASE SHARE

What’s your favorite flavor of backstage stories and tour bus adventures? What stories do you like to listen to? How about adventures with Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve Earle, Ray Wylie Hubbard or Joan Baez?

Flashy guitar “chops” and great story-telling are just the beginning of Mark Stuart’s Americana/Folk tour. His focus in recent years is touring solo, depending on the songs he has penned and recorded, delivered with a soulful singing voice and highly memorable guitar playing. It’s hard to escape a great Nashville family name (Earle) but Mark Stuart’s rock, blues, country, and folk music roots are impeccable in their own right. And they make an exciting show!

One can find Mark Stuart on any given night in a small theater, coffeehouse, house concert, festival stage, club, church auditorium, etc. giving it his all. Aside from that, he could be instructing at a guitar clinic, songwriting workshop, or playing on someone’s recording session. As co-owner of Gearle Records he has produced or co-produced many albums. Stuart’s career has repeatedly taken him to all of the USA, Canada, Europe, and the United Kingdom, and, has spanned several decades.

The LilFest Series brings worldwide quality performances to intimate Iowa concert settings. Mark Stuart follows in the footsteps of other international performers like Nathan Bell, Phil Heywood, Malcolm Holcombe, Radoslav Lorković, Guy Mendilow, Claudia Nygaard, Jim Post, Eric Taylor, The Sweet Potatoes, James Lee Stanley, Lucie Thorne & The Yearlings.

LilFest searches the world for deeply rooted songs and stories of passion and power for our modern lives.

Live Music – Malcom Holcombe – LilFest Fall Music Series

PLEASE SHARE

The First Street Community Center’s Uptown Theatre is pleased to be hosting the “real deal” North Carolina backwoods picker and songwriter Malcom Holcombe.

“It is Malcolm’s perception of the world that make his songs hit you like a gunpowder blast. His gruff and tough delivery is a primordial power full of grit, spit and anthropomorphic expression,”

– Ray Kennedy

Ray Kennedy is a Nashville 5-time GRAMMY award winning producer of Art Garfunkel, Lucinda Williams, Taylor Swift, Buddy Guy, Greg Brown, Joan Baez and Steve Earle, to pick a few names from his star-studded studio.

Ray continues:  “Malcolm Holcombe is fiercely striking every time you encounter him on or off stage. You just get sucked into his extraordinary world of the twisting of words and wisdom that come from a bottomless well. The melodies and fierce rhythms wrap his narrative into an event where you find yourself at his unique musical carnival. Then suddenly he slays you with a sweet love ballad…”

Trends come and go. What is real is the ground beneath our feet, the sky above us, the struggle to earn a living. These are Malcolm Holcombe’s timeless subjects and the spin he puts on them makes our journey here more bearable.

“… and that’s a pretty good nod to the effect of hearing Holcombe sing. If you’ve not seen him in a live setting, this is what you have to do. His presence is spooky and timeless, as one imagines it was like to see Son House or Leadbelly. No emotional stone is left unturned.”

– Craig Havighurst, Nashville
