Drawing on lessons learned while busking on Frenchmen Street, training in classical music at the University of New Orleans, and working as a music therapist in New York City, Luke Winslow-King has a boiled-down, Delta blues, gospel, and jazz-themed new album, The Coming Tide, that has made fans of rock and blues heavyweights like Jack White and Robert Earl Keen. Catch LWK’s slide guitar flurries, improvised lyrics, and endearing boy-girl harmonies before he leaves intimate venues behind for the international touring circuit.

Sunday 5/19 Free, 7pm. The Garage, 250 First St. www.thegarage-cville.com.
