Captain Luke – Live at The Hamilton



Captain Luke’s voice like honey dripping on hot chocolate and the beautifully stunning guitar of Cool John Ferguson breathe new life and nuance into this set of old songs. In 2012,ÊTom Meyer and Bart Farrell invited their friendÊCaptain Luke (84) to perform a special show at The Hamilton, a new venue they opened just three blocks from the White House.

Captain Luke, from Winston-Salem, NC, used to sing locally with the legendary 5 Royale’s in the 50s. And for the last 60 years, he has been king of Winston-Salem’s drink-house milieu. Cool John Ferguson from Beaufort, SCÊis a youngster by Music Maker’s standards, a living bridge between his Gullah heritage and the psychedelic rock and roll and R&B of his childhood. When these two Carolina men join together onstage, jaws drop.
