The Malpass Brothers to Perform at the Appalachian Theater on November 6 | Local News
BOONE – The Appalachian Theater of the High Country will host the Malpass Brothers for an evening concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 6 with support from the Mast General Store.
Originally scheduled for 2020, this live, in-person concert is finally taking place on the Doc Watson stage at ATHC. With a fierce passion for preserving the legacy of classic country and bluegrass music, these musical brothers from Goldsboro bring with them a refreshing twist to iconic American music.
With a sincerity and ease on stage that belies their years, North Carolina natives Christopher and Taylor Malpass combine their fluid vocal mix and musical talent with the deep respect they give to country music legends who opened the country. way. Both gifted musicians and songwriters, they shared the billing with artists such as Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Doyle Lawson, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, and Doc Watson, to name a few.
Both brothers have had a deep appreciation for American music from a young age, raised on their grandfather’s phonograph records. Today, they promote the work and music of classic country artists they cherish, while creating new music and leaving their own mark on the rich cultural lineage of authentic country music.
The hallmark of their shows is a smooth vocal blend and skillful musicality that deeply respects the legends who led the way. Add in the fun, improvised jokes between the two 20-something siblings and the captivating concert becomes a magnetic journey back in time where a calmer rhythm reigned supreme.
A hallmark of the duo is their iconic ‘retro-Billy’ wardrobe and presentation.
“We get dressed,” Christopher said. “We think people deserve to see someone who looks good, so you shouldn’t dress like you’ve changed oil.”
Their signature look not only dazzles audiences, but matches their old school sound. For the brothers, this spirit is not only present on stage. For the Malpass brothers, it is their way of life.
The Malpass Brothers have toured with the late Don Helms, Hank Williams’ former steel guitarist, opened for music legend Merle Haggard on several tours, and appeared on stages in the Shetland Islands at Ryman Auditorium in Merlefest. The title video from their album “Memory That Bad” reached CMT Pure Country’s Top Ten. Their most recent self-titled recording, produced by bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson, was released by Crossroads’ Organic Records in 2015.
According to previous presenters, “This is the real deal, folks. There is no pretext. Count on real classic country. Count on new tracks from Malpass. Count on some traditional gospels from the past. Count on them probably coming into the house during intermission and asking what you would like to hear. Count on giggles and ribs between brothers. Count on big hair and fancy boots and maybe even a twitch or two from Elvis.
