Jake Kulak brings The LowDown to New London for a "Live Lunch Break" concert
We're not suggesting most Young Persons have a fairly narrow range of musical tastes. Heck, there's a whole world of contemporary and archival tuneage out there.
But give some props to 16-year-old Jake Kulak, who received a Fender Squire guitar as a gift in 2011 and developed a thirst for artists ranging from Son House and Muddy Waters to Robert Johnson and B.B. King.
If you're playing along at home, none of those artists are in One Direction.
Kulak, a genuine prodigy, brings his band The LowDown to New London Thursday for an appearance on The Day's "Live Lunch Break" concert series. Be there because, in the fine tradition of youngsters-of-yore such as Kenny Wayne Shepard, Monster Mike Welch and Jonny Lang, Kulak could well be on a quick ride to the big time. Expect to see and hear material from his impressive first recording, "Let Me Go."
Live Lunch Break, noon Thursday, Telegraph Records Shop, 19 Golden St., New London; free; theday.com/livelunch.
