€15 (€15 members)

Grammy-nominated Brother Dege Legg is one of the best-kept secrets in Louisiana; a musician, slide guitarist, writer (Louisiana Press Award 2004, 2008), outsider artist and heir to a long line of enigmatic characters birthed in slaughterhouse of the Deep South.

The first Brother Dege release, the now critically-acclaimed Folk Songs of the American Longhair (2010) - a record that Quentin Tarantino later referred to as “almost like a greatest hits album” of new Delta blues.

Brother Dege’s latest album is the critically acclaimed ‘Farmer’s Almanac’(2018), an 11-track, southern gothic journey that explores escapism, class structure, and the opiated dark side of America’s small town rural communities. Brother Dege’s fourth album swarms with otherworldly slide guitars, rustic psychedelia, possessed barn burners, and swamp-drenched cinematic songcraft.
