Masks Encouraged


Enjoy an evening of great music in an intimate gallery setting.

Join Rockland Center for the Arts for a concert with internationally-acclaimed musician and songwriter, Toby Walker, on Saturday, February 25th at 7:30 pm.

A virtuoso performer of roots music, he has been hailed as a specialist of fingerstyle guitar. He has toured both the US, and Europe to thunderous accolades. Blending the blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, old-time jazz and rock, Walker’s style is his own. His unique musicianship has earned him numerous awards, including being the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award—Solo Division given out by the Blues Foundation in Memphis, TN.  He has taught at Carnegie Hall and at the acclaimed Fur Peace Ranch guitar camp, owned by Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane fame.

Walker apprenticed and learned from legendary masters like R.L. Brunside and ‘Son’ Thomas, Jack Owens and Bud Spires.  His command of a guitar has earned him a place among the elite acoustic guitar players around the globe.  Walker’s well versed styles can soothe with delicate finger-picked patterns of low and slow to lightning-fast runs up and down the neck, rivaling the fireworks that his electric counterparts generate.  Walker can do it all on a six-string.

 “If he doesn’t get them with his phenomenal guitar playing or catchy songs, he gets them with his wonderful stories. True entertainers have an engaging spirit that puts a smile on your face. Arlo Guthrie has it. David Bromberg has it. And so does Toby.”

—John Platt, WFUV

 “You have to hear this great musician . . . I’m blown away.”

—Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Airplane
