Luke Winslow-King to play concert in Brethren

BRETHREN — The Spirit of the Woods Music Association will host a concert by Luke Winslow-King at 8 p.m. on Feb. 3, at the Browntown Hall, 8233 Coates Highway in Brethren. Admission is at a cost at the door. The Spirit of the Woods Music Association is a non-profit organization.

Luke Winslow-King is a New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter. His work is an eclectic mix that combines Mississippi delta blues, folk music, traditional jazz, and roots rock & roll. His alchemical songs blend contemporary ideas with styles from bygone eras producing a sound that is rustic and urbane, elegant and entirely his own. It is a sound that looks to the past to move to the future. This along with his burgundy voice, dapper attire and versatile guitar playing have earned him a reputation as a musician who delivers soulfully energetic and dynamic performances.

Originally from the northern Michigan town of Cadillac, LWK began studying and performing music at a young age. He started performing weekly in a local bar band at 14, formed The Winslow-King Blues Band at 16 and earned a diploma from the renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, where he majored in jazz guitar.

After recording his first self-titled debut album in 2007, he continued paying his dues, busking on Royal Street during the day and working in the clubs on Frenchman Street at night. In 2008, LWK recorded “Old New Baby” mostly live at Preservation Hall in New Orleans. He joined the Bloodshot Records roster in 2013 with the release of The Coming Tide, and followed with 2014’s Everlasting Arms and 2016’s I’m Glad Trouble Don’t Last Always.
