Luke Winslow-King

Luke Winslow-King is a guitarist, singer, composer, and lyricist known for his slide guitar work, and interest in pre-war blues and traditional jazz. Winslow- King’s work consists of an eclectic mix, taking in delta-folk music, classical composition, ragtime, and rock and roll; juxtaposing original songs with those from a bygone era.

Whether solo, or with a band, Winslow-King offers an original sound that is both rustic and elegant. He delivers energetic and dynamic performances, with his burgundy voice and versatile guitar playing.

LWK, originally from Cadillac, Michigan, moved to New Orleans by chance in 2001. During a decade in New Orleans, he has collaborated with a revered list of local musicians, including: John Boutte, “Washboard” Chaz Leary, and Paul Sanchez.

Performing years of weekly gigs on Frenchmen Street, LWK has honed his sound and earned respect as leader among the young traditionalists, while playing to countless vacationers making musical pilgrimages to New Orleans. Outside the Crescent City, accompanied by singer/washboard- player/sweatheart Eshter Rose and bassist Cassidy Holden, the trio has performed festivals, jazz halls, dive bars, listening rooms, barns, theatres, and arenas across the US and Europe; sharing the stage with icons such as Taj Mahal, John Anderson, Cheick Hamala Diabete, Jack White, Robert Earl Keen, Tower of Power, Rebirth Brass Band, and Chris Thile
