"Flat outyou have to hear this great musician. I'm blown away" Jorma Kaukonen "A real killer with fantastic technique. He just knocks me out." -John Hammond
Without a doubt, Toby Walker is one of the very finest acoustic blues guitarists working today. This outstanding musician won the Best Performer in all categories at the prestigious International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. From the opening bars of his high-energy Piedmont style, it is easy to see why: start with the picking of David Bromberg, Merle Travis, and Robert Johnson. Then add the improvisational qualities of Buddy Guy and Mark Knopfler, and you have Toby Walker. He makes six strings sound like a thundering army of six hundred! He plays blues, rags, hot country picking, and coaxes more out of a guitar than you can imagine, but the originality doesn't end there. He is also a skilled singer and songwriter who draws inspiration from traditional and contemporary music. Be ready for lots of laughs, great songs and entertaining stories as Toby tells the humorous and heartwarming tales of other masters, talks about his inspirations, and astounds with his authentic 1930 National Steel Guitar.
