Music Inside Out With Luke Winslow-King

What do you get when you combine modern jazz, the music of Woody Guthrie, Delta blues, and Antonín Dvořák's "American" String Quartet?

You get Luke Winslow-King.

Born and raised in Michigan, a crime landed him in New Orleans. But, ever the optimist, Winslow-King decided to stay. And yet, the road has been more of a home in recent years. Winslow-King is spending the final months of 2013 on a European tour.

“I play for people who still feel like there is something positive and exciting left out in the world to experience.”

Luke Winslow-King’s talent has drawn aggressive praise. One music lover, who was moved to weep while listening, slapped Winslow-King at the end of the song.
