He sang himself to popularity here at Tønder Festival 2018, and even more listeners will likely be won over this year. Luke Winslow-King, born in 1983, is a guitarist, singer and songwriter based in New Orleans. His music is built on blues and jazz, and he floats effortlessly between delta blues, ragtime, folk and roots rock. He is well grounded in the great American music traditions, which inform his personal, rustic sound with its twist of elegance. On his most recent album, Blue Mesa, from 2018, Luke Winslow-King shows many sides of his talent: sensitive blues guitarist, melodic tunesmith and solid rock’n’roller. Originally from Cadillac in Michigan, USA, his fate was sealed at age 19 during a visit to New Orleans. For several years he has been part of the Crescent City music scene, and it was here he recorded his first release, Old/New Baby, in the historic Preservation Hall in 2008. His only Danish festival appearance in 2019.
