About the event
Luke LeBlanc is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter who delivers dynamic and versatile original performances that feature a warm, organic merging of rootsy folk and pop. As noted by The Current, LeBlanc’s music is “so delicate, understated, and careful in its construction that you forget it’s taking apart how to live in such an unstable world while giving solace and a place for rest.”
Luke’s music has been featured on 89.3 the Current and has received critical acclaim from numerous music magazines, including Bluegrass Situation, Americana Highways, and Glide Magazine. His music has also been featured in numerous podcasts, including The Bob Cesca Show, 13th Floor MusicTalk with Marty Duda, Tales from the Corners with Robert J Nebel, and Strongwriter on the Radio with Dean Olsen.
LeBlanc taught himself how to play guitar at 11 years old and decided to write his own words and music soon after. At 13, he was the youngest to win the Zimmy’s (named after Robert Zimmerman, aka Bob Dylan) national Dylan influenced singer-songwriter competition in Hibbing, Minnesota. Born and raised in Minneapolis’ Northside, LeBlanc played South by Southwest in Texas in 2017 and found himself opening for Charlie Parr, Phil Solem of the Rembrandts, Joey Molland of Badfinger, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.
His newest album, Fugue State, was released on October 28, 2022, a follow up to 2021’s Only Human. The album has garnered numerous positive reviews, including an invite by Minnesota Public Radio to perform in-studio for The Current’s Radio Heartland, a feature in Ed Helm’s bluegrass magazine, Bluegrass Situation, and an appearance on Duluth’s morning news.
