Ore Dock Brewing Co. is ecstatic to welcome
Luke Winslow-King, a New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter. His work is an eclectic mix that combines Mississippi delta blues, folk music, traditional jazz, and roots rock & roll. His alchemical songs blend contemporary ideas with styles from bygone eras producing a sound that is rustic and urbane, elegant and entirely his own. It is a sound that looks to the past to move to the future. This along with his burgundy voice, dapper attire and versatile guitar playing have earned him a reputation as a musician who delivers soulfully energetic and dynamic performances.

Originally from the northern Michigan town of Cadillac, LWK began studying and performing music at a young age. He started performing weekly in a local bar band at 14, formed The Winslow-King Blues Band at 16 and earned a diploma from the renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, where he majored in jazz guitar.

He first came to Louisiana at age 19 and ended up staying there almost by chance; after only a few days in town, his car – filled to the brim with a band’s worth of instruments – was stolen while parked overnight on Ursulines Street in the Tremé. During the weeks spent trying to recover his vehicle and instruments, LWK fell in love with the city that he now calls home.

After recording his first self-titled debut album in 2007, he continued paying his dues, busking on Royal Street during the day and working in the clubs on Frenchman Street at night.

In 2008, LWK recorded Old New Baby mostly live at Preservation Hall in New Orleans. He learned gospel and jazz standards accompanying John Boutté, picked up bottleneck slide guitar watching blues maestro Roberto Luti, performed in John Sinclair's Blues Scholars, and immersed himself in the trad. jazz songbook while playing with Ben Polcer and The Loose Marbles Jazz Band. During this time he was also a member Meschiya Lake's Little Big Horns and is featured on her album Lucky Devil.

This non-stop woodshedding helped Winslow-King hone his sound and become a leader among the vibrant scene of young traditionalists in New Orleans. Luke Winslow-King has collaborated with New Orleans legends and wunderkinds alike, including Dr. John, Boutté, Roberto Luti, Little Freddy King, Washboard Chaz, and Meschiya Lake. In addition to holding down residencies at numerous venues and releasing four studio records over the course of nine years, he has toured extensively in North America and Europe, appearing on notable stages such as Austin City Limits, New Orleans JazzFest, Azkena Rock Festival (Spain), Paradiso (Netherlands), Maverick Festival (UK), and countless more.Luke Winslow-King is a New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter.

Marquette Regional History Center presents:  Lunch with the History People – featuring Dick Lutey on Thursday, July 26th

Aren’t there a million questions you have about historic buildings, legendary people, “what are those ruins” and on and on. We can’t guarantee you’ll get all the answers but you’ll have fun learning more about local history. So bring your bag lunch at 12:00 pm to the History Center on a given day each month during the summer.  For the month of July, we are pleased to bring you car enthusiast, Dick Lutey.

Dick moved to Marquette when he was a young child. He graduated from Graveraet High School and then NMU. His addiction to “old cars” began at age five when he watched the high school students driving Model T Fords to school. The Ts were available then for $5 to $10. Dick’s first antique car was a 1931 Model A Coupe, when he was 16. His second was a 1923 Model T purchased in 1953 for $5.

His collecting continued for the next 65 years. He found, restored or preserved many interesting early automobiles. His main interest has been the history of cars and car companies from the early 1900s through the 1930s.

As a collector, he has had to sell cars after buying a new one. Through the years, he has owned about 160 vehicles. Currently he owns fifteen antique vehicles. Call 906. 226. 3571 for more info on the MRHC event, or visit marquettehistory.org

Ore Dock Brewing Co. is ecstatic to welcome
Luke Winslow-King, a New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter. His work is an eclectic mix that combines Mississippi delta blues, folk music, traditional jazz, and roots rock & roll. His alchemical songs blend contemporary ideas with styles from bygone eras producing a sound that is rustic and urbane, elegant and entirely his own. It is a sound that looks to the past to move to the future. This along with his burgundy voice, dapper attire and versatile guitar playing have earned him a reputation as a musician who delivers soulfully energetic and dynamic performances.

Originally from the northern Michigan town of Cadillac, LWK began studying and performing music at a young age. He started performing weekly in a local bar band at 14, formed The Winslow-King Blues Band at 16 and earned a diploma from the renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, where he majored in jazz guitar.

He first came to Louisiana at age 19 and ended up staying there almost by chance; after only a few days in town, his car – filled to the brim with a band’s worth of instruments – was stolen while parked overnight on Ursulines Street in the Tremé. During the weeks spent trying to recover his vehicle and instruments, LWK fell in love with the city that he now calls home.

After recording his first self-titled debut album in 2007, he continued paying his dues, busking on Royal Street during the day and working in the clubs on Frenchman Street at night.

In 2008, LWK recorded Old New Baby mostly live at Preservation Hall in New Orleans. He learned gospel and jazz standards accompanying John Boutté, picked up bottleneck slide guitar watching blues maestro Roberto Luti, performed in John Sinclair's Blues Scholars, and immersed himself in the trad. jazz songbook while playing with Ben Polcer and The Loose Marbles Jazz Band. During this time he was also a member Meschiya Lake's Little Big Horns and is featured on her album Lucky Devil.

This non-stop woodshedding helped Winslow-King hone his sound and become a leader among the vibrant scene of young traditionalists in New Orleans. Luke Winslow-King has collaborated with New Orleans legends and wunderkinds alike, including Dr. John, Boutté, Roberto Luti, Little Freddy King, Washboard Chaz, and Meschiya Lake. In addition to holding down residencies at numerous venues and releasing four studio records over the course of nine years, he has toured extensively in North America and Europe, appearing on notable stages such as Austin City Limits, New Orleans JazzFest, Azkena Rock Festival (Spain), Paradiso (Netherlands), Maverick Festival (UK), and countless more.Luke Winslow-King is a New Orleans-based guitarist, singer, composer, producer, and songwriter.

Marquette Regional History Center presents:  Lunch with the History People – featuring Dick Lutey on Thursday, July 26th

Aren’t there a million questions you have about historic buildings, legendary people, “what are those ruins” and on and on. We can’t guarantee you’ll get all the answers but you’ll have fun learning more about local history. So bring your bag lunch at 12:00 pm to the History Center on a given day each month during the summer.  For the month of July, we are pleased to bring you car enthusiast, Dick Lutey.

Dick moved to Marquette when he was a young child. He graduated from Graveraet High School and then NMU. His addiction to “old cars” began at age five when he watched the high school students driving Model T Fords to school. The Ts were available then for $5 to $10. Dick’s first antique car was a 1931 Model A Coupe, when he was 16. His second was a 1923 Model T purchased in 1953 for $5.

His collecting continued for the next 65 years. He found, restored or preserved many interesting early automobiles. His main interest has been the history of cars and car companies from the early 1900s through the 1930s.

As a collector, he has had to sell cars after buying a new one. Through the years, he has owned about 160 vehicles. Currently he owns fifteen antique vehicles. Call 906. 226. 3571 for more info on the MRHC event, or visit marquettehistory.org
