Wake Forest ARTS, PineCone and the Town of Wake forest are teaming up to offer another free concert in the Joyner Park Amphitheater from 5-7 p.m this Sunday, September 6th, featuring Lakota John & Kin. Lakota John & Kin offer a blend of ancient Native American harmonies and traditional blues. Lakota John is joined by Mama Tonya, Papa John and Sister Layla. A proud Lumbee and Oglala Nation family of talented musicians, Lakota John & Kin are based in Robeson County, North Carolina. Lakota John, at just 18-years-old, is a master guitarist with a voice that sounds beyond his years. He grew up listening to his dad’s music collection, and picked up the harmonica at the age of seven and the guitar at the age of nine. The band’s debut record features their signature blending of traditional styles of the Delta and Piedmont acoustic blues with bottle-neck slide guitar and a mix of Chicago electric blues. Locklear’s unique sound is also sprinkled with a bit of harmonica and influences from his indigenous heritage, including sounds of the Native American flute.
