An unconventional folk and blues singer from Brooklyn (by way of Pennsylvania), Langhorne Slim skillfully infuses his rootsy songs with elements of bluegrass, rock, and country music. Click the link above to hear Slim perform a concert from WXPN and World Café Live.

Once known as Sean Scolnick, Slim has got his start touring as a popular opener for the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. A handful of independent releases followed, but Slim's ascent has begun in earnest with the release of a new, self-titled CD. The disc nicely blends simplicity and eccentricity, reflecting his live-wire stage act.
