WE ARE NOW OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT FOR TONIGHT SHOW.
Gopherwood is pleased to welcome back Cadillac's own Luke Winslow-King for a house concert. Luke is donating a portion of the proceeds from this show back to Gopherwood to help further our mission to bring top quality music to Cadillac and northern Michigan.
Luke Winslow-King’s latest album is an example of craftsmanship at the highest level, radiating a warmth and timeless elegance. Adept at mixing country, blues, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, and folk influences intuitively and masterfully, Luke shapes a mood from many sources and shepherds it to a unifying place of acceptance and hope. Blue Mesa is both stately and approachable, manifestly proficient but deeply personal.
What sets this album above the singer and guitarist’s previous work is how he’s absorbed the offerings of a life in music. Born and raised in the Northern Michigan town of Cadillac, he moved to New Orleans at 19 and spent the next 15 years fully immersing himself in the musical waters that flow through there. Now that he’s moved on, it is the larger world, and the people and places in it, that enthralls him. From these travels and friendships comes a deeper and richer perspective on the American musical traditions he fell in love with at an early age.
Blue Mesa was recorded across the globe in the Tuscan fortress village of Lari, Italyand features long-time collaborator and Italian blues guitar dynamo Roberto Luti, Chris Davis of King James and the Special Men, and Mike Lynch (Bob Seger, Larry McCray) on organ, among others.
Luke Winslow-King has collaborated with New Orleans legends and wunderkinds alike, including Dr. John, John Boutté, Luti, Little Freddy King, Washboard Chaz, and Meschiya Lake. In addition to holding down residencies at numerous venues and releasing four studio records over the course of nine years, he has toured extensively in North America and Europe, appearing on notable stages such as Austin City Limits, New Orleans JazzFest, Azkena Rock Festival (Spain), Paradiso (Netherlands), Maverick Festival (UK), and countless more.
Join us for this unique opportunity to see Luke in a house concert setting for an up close and personal experience and help Gopherwood continue to bring FINE music like this to Cadillac.
This show will take place in the home of Paul and Nancy Brown. Feel free to bring your own beverage and snacks.
