Left Wing Bourbon

Saturday, June 22 | 4:30-6:30pm
Park Stage

Officially formed in 2007, Left Wing Bourbon is a confluence of regional musical streams. Seasoned with years of hosting and playing at Blues jams, they consistently move the masses to swing their hips at summer festivals, mixing soul, boogie, and funk into a kinetic Blues cocktail guaranteed to get you groovin’.

Faith Ulwelling’s vocals channel 60s soul and Delta grit; her brother, Jacob Ulwelling, caresses his bass until it moans and sings a counterpoint all its own. Tim Caswell (keys) brings sawdust-stage savvy to the performance, careening the band from ragtime to Motown, enhancing LWB’s funkadelic essence. Nancy Long (drums) and John Nietz (guitar) magnify the vibe, lifting audiences to their feet, seducing them to sway in time.

Influenced by the songs of Jon Cleary, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Robert Cray, Ray Charles, James Brown, Chaka Khan, Koko Taylor, and Etta James.
