Bank of Ann Arbor's Sonic Lunch is pleased to welcome Luke Winslow King to Liberty Plaza on Thursday, July 11 at Noon.
"Cadillac, Michigan native Luke Winslow King made New Orleans his home about a dozen years ago, and the Crescent City has definitely left its mark on King’s music. The singer, songwriter and guitarist specializes in the classic sounds of early folk, blues, rock & roll and ragtime, played with soulful New Orleans flair.
A seriously gifted musician with a degree in Jazz guitar from Michigan’s prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy, King paid his dues by busking on the streets of New Orleans during his early days in Louisiana. Since then he’s shared stages with Jack White, Taj Mahal, Nickel Creek’s Chris Thile and the Rebirth Brass Band. Deftly mixing original material with songs from a bygone era, Luke Winslow King brings his dynamic five-piece band to Liberty Plaza this Thursday as part of Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch concert series."
