ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

LANGHORNE SLIM: Something of a one-man mixture of the Cramps, Beck's early indie records (circa One Foot in the Grave), and the soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou, singer and guitarist Langhorne Slim offers a sardonic, modern take on traditional folk, country, and blues. Langhorne Slim expertly walks the line between the sublime and the subterranean. At once raucous and reverent, his old-timey country blues is tempered with the occasional outburst of punk rock insolence indicating that there may just be an anarchy sign on the back of his guitar and a little more than constant sorrow on the brain of this charismatic troubadour. Langhorne Slim uses his own homemade bred-out-of-loneliness technique of flat picking, molding the classic sounds of Doc Watson and Lester Flatt, formulating a bluegrass nightmare that you just do not want to end. His stage performance must be seen to be believed."

With EMPTY ORCHESTRA and SAM LOWRY.
