Toby Walker in Concert
Saturday, February 25th @ 7:30pm
Tickets: $25.00 ($20 seniors/students)
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
