Come on down to the folk school for a free show!
Luke Callen is originally from the river town of La Crosse, Wisconsin – the heart of the Driftless Region – and he currently lives in Minneapolis, MN by way of Colorado. A teller of tall tales and a singer of short tunes, Luke lugs around a couple of guitars, a few harmonicas, and even a banjo if he has to.
Having steeped himself like a cheap bag of tea that you found in a drawer you rarely open, in the recordings of Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music, to campfires, classrooms, honkytonks, festivals, and clubs across the country, Luke brings his humble sense of humor and humanity. With his Chevy Astro greased up, Luke has played hundreds of shows spanning both coasts, the American west, south and heartland. He has had the opportunity to provide support for Dom Flemons, Dead Horses, The Dustbowl Revival, Kacy & Clayton, James McMurtry, Whiskey Shivers, Charlie Parr, The Lowest Pair, The Last Revel, Lilly Hiatt, Chicago Farmer, and Robbie Fulks among others.
