Luke Winslow-King featuring Roberto Luti

May 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Luke Winslow-King is a guitarist, singer, producer, and songwriter. Having spent more than 15 years in New Orleans, his work is an eclectic mix that combines Mississippi delta blues, folk music, traditional jazz, and roots rock & roll.

His songs blend contemporary ideas with styles from bygone eras, producing a sound that is rustic, urbane, elegant, and entirely his own.

Tuscan Slide Guitar Maestro Roberto Luti’s unorthodox, angular, and evocative slide guitar style is based on Mississippi and Chicago blues and is influenced by soul and African roots traditions. During his nearly decade-long residency in New Orleans, Luti became an integral part of international recording project Playing For Change (PFC). He also laid the original track for One Love, Higher Ground, and Gimme Shelter, which has accumulated over 100 million YouTube plays.

 

Luke Winslow King and Roberto Luti have toured extensively in North America and Europe, appearing on notable stages such as Austin City Limits, New Orleans JazzFest, Azkena Rock Festival (Spain), Tønder Festival Paradiso (Netherlands), Glastonbury (UK), Byron Bay Blues Fest (AUS), and countless more. Recorded in Memphis, Tennessee, Winslow-King’s seventh full-length album “If These Walls Could Talk” is to be released May 2022 on Ghost River Records, featuring Roberto Luti, Rev. Charles Hodges (Al Green), Fat Possum recording artists The Sensational Barnes Brothers, and was produced by Dominc John Davis (Jack White). Like all of Winslow-King’s work, “If These Walls Could Talk” continues to propel rugged roots to the vanguard of modern artistic sensibility.

“They’re one of the most professional, staunchly original, and true-to-their-core bands working today.” — American Songwriter

“Steeped in the muddy Delta blues, but prickles with the raunch of a more Mid-Western take on the genre.” — Consequence of Sound

“…he demonstrate[s] a wide range of songwriting worthy of comparison to Jason Isbell and John Fullbright.” — Austin Chronicle
