KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Kick off a weekend of great music when Jubilee Community Arts presents Malcome Holcombe 8 p.m. April 14 and The Naughty Knots 8 p.m. April 15 at the Laurel Theater.
Malcolm Holcombe is highly regarded and recognized by contemporaries in Americana music including Emmylou Harris, Wilco, Steve Earle. Holcombe has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Richard Thompson, John Hammond, Leon Russell, Wilco and Shelby Lynne. His most recent release Another Black Hole features the mix of country, acoustic blues and rugged folk.
The East Tennessee trio, The Naughty Knots, bring together a blend of country, jazz and blues and old time fiddle tunes that are as homegrown as garden tomatoes.The Naughty Knots can cook up some delicious tunes and serve them on a silver platter with a focus on great songwriting, tight harmonies and solid instrumentation, as they showed in their first release, 12 Song in the Pan.
Tickets to each show are $15. Discounts apply to advance purchase, JCA members, students and seniors.
The Laurel Theater is located on the corner of 16th and Laurel Avenue in the historic Fort Sanders neighborhood of Knoxville near the UT campus.
