With his guttural bottom-of-a-well voice, Malcolm Holcombe sings about random violence, no-fuss fatalism and the resilience of struggling Americans. He’s also funny as hell. Holcombe once told a bluegrass crowd that the Statue of Liberty should be returned to France, since our lethargic response to the Syrian refugee crisis showed we didn’t believe a word of that “Give me…your huddled masses” jazz. He’s irascible, brilliant and big-hearted.
