Luke Winslow-King Trio & Po' Girl to Play Kilkenny's in Traverse City Sunday

The Luke Winslow-King Trio, founded by Cadillac native Luke Winslow-King, will join nationally renowned Po’ Girl for a "magical night of music and storytelling" beginning at 7:00 p.m, Sunday, at Kilkenny’s in Traverse City. Doors for the event open at 6:00 p.m. In honor of the show—and as a test run ahead of May’s state-wide smoking ban—the entire venue will be non-smoking for the evening. Food and appetizers, as well as $6 craft beer pitchers, will be available for attendees.

Luke Winslow-King, who currently lives and performs in New Orleans, began his studies of blues and delta folk at Interlochen Academy for the Arts, eventually going on to study at the University of New Orleans and St. Charles University in Prague. The Luke Winslow-King Trio, featuring New Orleans tuba and washboard duo Jason "Jack" Jurzak and Richard Levinson, has been praised by music sites including Daytrotter and the All-Music Guide for their "perfect" vocal and instrument work and their ability to transport audiences into a different "time and century."

Po’ Girl, national artists who opened for last year’s Sweet Honey in the Rock concert, have made fans worldwide with their intricate harmonies and distinct instrumentation. Allison Russell, Awna Teixeira, Benny Sidelinger, and Mikey "Lightning" August are as much at home playing the International Jazz Festival or Winnipeg Folk Festival as they are performing in small parks in Amsterdam. The group released their fourth studio album, "Deer in the Night," last May and are currently working on a new album slated for release this spring, Po’ Girl will stop in Traverse City as part of their "No Shame Tour," the proceeds of which will support the National Children’s Alliance in the U.S. and Little Warriors in Canada in their efforts to prevent child abuse.

Tickets to the show are $10 in advance and $13 at the door. Attendees must be 21 or over. For tickets and more information, visit porterhouseproductions.com.
