Wink Burcham Live this Friday at The Saloon!
January 12 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Singer/songwriter, Wink Burcham, has been playing the Tulsa music scene for a number of years, and is an integral part of a new wave of Tulsa talent. He has developed a very loyal following in the region and is beginning to step out on a national scale. Performing a style that easily slips between old-fashioned country, grass-roots folk, and Motown inspired blues, it’s easy to understand his appeal. His soulful melodies support witty and heartfelt lyrics in the tradition of John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, and John Lee Hooker.
Wink can be described as an “old soul” and his song craft belies his age. With a genuine reverence to the past, these songs are the stories of his life. The album title, “Irene Vennie”, is taken from his grandmother’s name. The cover art finds him sitting in his grandmother’s chair in his own yard.
Wink recently won the 2012 Blues Society of Tulsa best solo/duo act and was a semi-finalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN in early 2013. His song, “Town In Oklahoma”, from The New Tulsa Sound Vol 2: The Church Studio Sessions album was voted the #2 song about Oklahoma by This Land and 50,000 of it’s readers.
Wink’s new release, “Comfortable Shoes”, is a 2-track analog recording of just Wink and his guitar, available on CD and limited whiskey-colored vinyl on Horton Records in May 2013.
