Late Saturday night at this year’s SXSW, I was making my way back to the hotel after the official showcases had wound down. Or so I thought. Walking by Antone’s I heard the unmistakable sound of a slide guitar.
It would have been wrong to not step in and check it out, right? Inside I found Louisiana’s Brother Dege whipping the room into a swampy frenzy.
Dege will be releasing a new album entitled Farmer’s Almanac at the end of the month. In the meantime, here’s “Too Old To Die Young” from Dege’s 2010 release Folk Songs Of The American Longhair. The song was also featured in the movie “Django Unchained.”
