Luke Winslow-King – guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter – is based in New Orleans. His musical fundament is blues and jazz, and he moves effortlessly from delta blues to ragtime, folk and roots rock. Both as a singer and guitarist, he draws on the great American music traditions to create his own personal sound, simple yet elegant. Luke Winslow-King was born in 1983 in northern Michigan, moving to New Orleans at the age of 19. The loss of his van with all his instruments and gear just a few days after his arrival did not deter him. New Orleans became his new home, and soon he launched into the struggle for recognition on the city’s music scene.

He released his first album in 2007, taught himself slide guitar and played with musicians like John Boutté and Meschyia Lake’s Little Big Horns. He has made three further albums, the latest being I’m Glad Trouble Don’t Last Always. Today, Luke Winslow-King is on his way up, and Europe has caught on. This is his only Danish festival concert in 2018.
