Q: What's better than Luke Winslow-King performing with his awesome band?
A: Not much. But definitely Luke Winslow-King performing with his awesome band on a horse and carriage driving through the French Quarter in New Orleans!
If THIS VIDEO from the Bloody Sunday Sessions doesn't charm you and brighten your day, you have a heart of tar.
If you find yourself in the out of the way hipster enclave of Red Hook Brooklyn this Sunday night, why not treat yourself to a dinner and a show?
Stop by our buddies at the acclaimed Good Fork restaurant on Van Brunt and tell 'em we sent you. They'll hook you up with a tasty FREE dessert ( and i can vouch for a blood orange margarita to wash it down with) and some Bloodshot swag before you head over to see Luke Winslow-King at the Jalopy Theater later that night.
Sounds like a classy evening all the way around. Real class. Don Draper class...

There are some Bloodshot tie-ins we wanna alert you to:
Bloodshot Records is very excited to announce the signing of New Orleans-based artist Luke Winslow-King. Luke initially caught our ear with his unique style, emerging from the ashes of Delta blues, New Orleans traditional jazz, ragtime, and pre-war American folksong. After being transfixed watching Luke and singer/washboard player Esther Rose perform gorgeous duets at a noisy college bar in Chicago we were straight up hooked. His amalgam of sounds is full of culture and texture, and respectively Winslow-King’s knowledge of music history and attention to detail are nearly as captivating as his impeccable song compositions, guitar technique, and warm voice.
As for a little background detail: in 2010, already with two full-length albums under his belt, LWK formed a trio consisting of Rose and upright bass player Cassidy Holden that remains the namesake’s core incarnation. In June the group self released the exceptional The Coming Tide and after being bowled over, we knew Luke and Co. would make a great addition to the roster.
In March 2013 Bloodshot will re-release The Coming Tide with bonus tracks and new packaging.
Below is the remainder of the LWK’s show dates in 2012, with many more to come in the new year. He and the group tour extensively—roughly 175 performances over the last year—so keep an eye out for them in your area.
