Sell-out Crowd Expected for New Orleans Songwriter's Return to Saline on Jan. 29

Bloodshot Records recording artist Luke Winslow-King of New Orleans, a singer and composer known for his slide guitar work, is performing a solo concert on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in downtown Saline as part of the Acoustic Routes concert series hosted by Mangiamo Italian Grill, 107 W. Michigan Ave. Winslow-King's past performances in Saline have drawn capacity crowds.

"Luke has been a great supporter of Acoustic Routes since our first season in 2013," said Jim Cain, founder of the concert series. "When you tour constantly and play big shows like the New Orleans Jazz Festival, it's nice to connect with folks in a small and intimate room." 

The New York Times describes Winslow-King’s music as, “A boiled-down live, almost improvised sound that seamlessly melds Delta blues, gospel and jazz themes with personal, simplified lyrics that speak to his personal and artistic evolution.” Offbeat Magazine says, “Like all good troubadours, Winslow-King balances that blatant power with the sexy, sweet come-on lilt.”

A native of Cadillac, Mich. and an Interlochen graduate, Winslow-King has toured the United States and Europe extensively. He has also shared the stage with the likes of Jack White, Pokey Lafarge and Taj Mahal. He is especially well known to audiences in Ann Arbor and Saline, with regular appearances at The Ark, Sonic Lunch and Acoustic Routes.
