LA Salami

London folk singer L.A. Salami is already well established in the UK, but starts a North American tour in just a few weeks. On March 22, San Francisco will get to meet him.

When we say "folk," we don't just mean "someone who plays an acoustic guitar" — we mean it in the truest, troubadour-iest, Woody Guthrie-est sense of the genre. Salami's songs bring a stark sense of familiarity to day-to-day troubles, from workaday blues to global terrorism. Though he alternates between sparkling folk and nimble electric-guitar work, he keeps a sense of honest, heart-on-his-sleeve storytelling throughout.

Check out his Tiny Desk Concert from September of last year below, and get acquainted with your new favorite folk act.
