Langhorne Slim and the War Eagles are ripe for festivals, big or small Lollapalooza, The Newport Folk Festival, and The Philadelphia Folk Festival. Slim's voice is soulful and passionate, and The War Eagles drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and new bassist Jeff Ratner back it up enthusiastically.
This magical three-piece can stir a crowd into bursts of energy and slow the tempo for heart-driven ballads. Although Slim is mild-mannered off-stage, his charisma on stage is larger than life. This ain’t about ego but a transference from artist to audience. This willingness to share and connect is special and should be experienced. I speak from the heart I’ve seen them at least nine times.
Catch just a taste of the magic that is Langhorne Slim. Below is a new song uploaded by Breakfast On Tour from the Wakarusa Music Festival earlier in June.
