Langhorne Slim & The Law
Singer-songwriter Langhorne Slim and his band The Law play at New Brookland Tavern on Tuesday, Nov. 3. Frontman Slim delivers banjo-driven folk music backed by Malachi DeLorenzo on drums, Jeff Ratner on bass and David Moore on keyboard and banjo. The band’s reflective new album, “The Spirit Moves,” came out this summer. Some songs are quiet and confessional, and some beg to be danced to.
