Carolina Covers: Chip Robinson covers Malcolm Holcombe's "Who Carried You"

Posted by on Thu, Dec 13, 2012 at 3:33 PM

Today's Carolina Cover comes from Chip Robinson, covering "Who Carried You" from Asheville native Malcolm Holcolmbe's 1999 Geffen Records release, A Hundred Lies. When we set these sessions up and ask for a cover, folks sometimes do not have time to prepare because of scheduling. In this case, Robinson came in with what he said was one of his favorite songs; he delivers the song with a cleaner vocal take than the original but with the same finger-picked mournful spirit.

Chip has two area shows coming up this week: He plays solo tonight at Slim's with Mike Ferrio at 9 p.m. Tickets are $5. This is likely to be an environment to enjoy Robinson's quieter tunes, as we have presented them here. Saturday comes the big Backsliders reunion show at The Pour House. The 10 p.m. show costs $10. Both are highly recommended.

As a bonus we've included another tune from the Chip Robinson session. Here is the title track from his solo release, Mylow.
