About Langhorne Slim
He's a carpetbagger, a dandy, a boy scout and a lady killer: He's Langhorne Slim, country folk troubadour of New York City. Taking his name from the Pennsylvania town he grew up in, Slim (born Sean Scolnick) blends blues, bluegrass, gospel and a little rock 'n' roll into a rollicking tent revival soundtrack. Some have called his choirboy-in-heat vocals and creaky, jangly instrumentation a throwback, but they're missing the point. Langhorne Slim is a traditionalist, making vintage music with a distinctly modern gleam to it. It's all about persona ÃÂ either you like him or you don't. We do.
