Lookman Adekunle Salami (L.A. Salami) is a UK-based storyteller, poet, philosopher and singer-songwriter known for creating magnetic post-modern blues. In the words of NPR's Bob Boilen, who selected Salami's "Dancing With Bad Grammar" as one of his Top 10 Albums of 2016: "In the way Bob Dylan took his guitar and harmonica to accompany his rarely repeating ramblings, L.A Salami embraces a similar aesthetic, albeit as a black Englishman instead of a white Minnesotan." Salami's effortless rhyming delivers a steady stream of compelling, triumphantly truthful broadside ballads and topical observations. The emotionally intense words are paired with guitar, drums and bass.
Opener Cat Clyde hails from Stratford, Ontario. She is turning heads with her velvety vocals, slide guitar, and performance style informed by Etta James, Janis Joplin and Lead Belly.
