Luke Winslow-King tours in France and Benelux this month02-02-2017
This month, starting tomorrow in Vannes, Luke Winslow-King will be in Europe to play Les Nuits de L'Alligator and club shows in the Benelux. These shows will be the first in France, Belgium and The Netherlands on his fifth album I'm Glad Trouble Don't Last Always, released last September through Bloodshot Records.
The album shows his adept hand as a slide guitarist and band leader while revealing as well the breadth and depth of his ongoing adaptations of the musical styles that flow along the rivers and roadways of middle America’s vastness.
A solemn, lonely slide guitar opens the album, but the gospel-tinged vocals on On My Way bring uplift and set a tone for an album that conveys a message of perseverance through hard times. In the interim between the release of 2014’s Everlasting Arms and the beginning of work on I’m Glad Trouble Don’t Last Always, Winslow-King and his wife and musical partner, Esther Rose King, divorced. The resultant heartache echoes throughout the nine cuts here.
Be sure to see where Luke Winslow-King and his band will be performing this month. Later this year he will return for a full European tour playing festivals and club shows in June and July.
