Old Town New Folk featuring Lindsay Lou
Lindsay Lou has been making soulful, poignant music for the last decade. An undeniable powerhouse, Lou’s remarkable gifts as a singer, songwriter, musician and performer demand the listener’s attention. Her singing floats over the masterful playing and deep groove with both a fierce intensity and a tender intimacy. Her fourth album, Southland is a transformative and heart-wrenching ten-song stunner. Lou’s voice—and its unique ability to create an expansive, almost physically tangible soundscape. Lindsay Lou continues to collect a mass of friends and fans along the way. Notable U.S. festival plays include the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Merlefest. Abroad they have appeared at Scotland’s Shetland Island Folk Fest and Australia’s National Folk Festival. In the words of famed bluegrass musician David Grier, who caught Lindsay at a recent festival, “Lindsay...sings the way you would want to if you could. Phrasing, tone, emotion, it's all there. Effortless seemingly. Simply mesmerizing. Riveting! Don't miss the musical force that is Lindsay Lou.” For this performance, her Key West debut, Lindsay will be joined by award winning banjo player, Kyle Tuttle.
