Too Slim and the Taildraggers Kicks Off Downtown Summer Nights in June
Downtown Summer Nights kicks off the season with Too Slim and the Taildraggers.
If Tim “Too Slim” Langford only played slide guitar, he would slither around most other blues guitarists and put a ferocious bite on their pride. However, as the sole six-string slinger, songwriter and lead singer of the power trio Too Slim and the Taildraggers, he is a total force of nature leaving musical tracks for others to try and follow. In 2013 Too Slim and the Taildraggers will release a new CD recorded in Nashville with Producer Tom Hambridge. Now with 16 albums and countless gigs, he remains as untamed and menacing as ever.
