Close To Home

Close To Home

Recorded in Holcomb's home in eastern Kentucky, this album portrays the music of a master musician whose identification with his songs is intense, innate, and above all, honest. It's not for nothing that John Cohen, the man who recorded Close to Home, coined the phrase "the high lonesome sound" to describe Holcomb's voice.
