Langhorne Slim

When I first saw Langhorne Slim two years ago, playing in the student union of my tiny Pennsylvania college, I was completely blown away. With the rest of his rowdy, expressive band (Paul Defiglia, Malachi DeLorenzo), Langhorne filled the entire room with his own brand of driven folk. An extra kudos goes to Defiglia who put on an impressive upright bass performance.

Langhorne Slim plays music with every ounce of himself. This is the kind of small stage jam band that should lead the rest of the Americana pack. Langhorne’s new, self titled album hits stores this week and he will be in the area both this week and in early June.
