Master Blues Artist Toby Walker
Returns to the Acoustic Café Music Series
Saturday, May 31st
With Special guest Jann Klose

Internationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music fingerstyle guitar wizard. He’s been featured in the NY Times, the London Sunday Times and was the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award. Walker blends the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, rock and old time jazz into his own unique style.

Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Airplane says "Flat out... you have to hear this great musician... I'm blown away" and has employed Walker to teach at his famous Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp. In 2010 Walker won the NY Music Award for 'Best Instrumental CD,' sharing the honors with Mariah Carey, Rufus Wainwright and Judy Collins.

His latest CD release - 'What You See Is What You Get' - has been hailed as a shining success in the genre of traditional blues recordings. Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk, and other traditional American music drove him to the Mississippi Delta, Virginia and the Carolinas where he tracked down some of the more obscure, but immensely talented, music makers of an earlier era. He learned directly from Eugene Powell, James "Son" Thomas, Etta Baker, and R.L Burnside, among others.

The talent, passion, and soul of a Toby Walker performance reflects these travels. Whether it is telling the humorous and heartwarming tales of other masters, talking about his inspirations, or astounding you with his mastery, his performances are a feast for the senses. www.littletobywalker.com

"A real killer with fantastic technique. He just knocks me out."
- John Hammond, blues musician -

Special guest, singer/songwriter Jann Klose will open the show.
“Love, passion and intelligence come to the forefront in a strong display of craft and talent.”
