Toby Walker at Grounds & Sounds - Friday, July 12, 8:00 p.m.

LittleTobyWalkerInternationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has toured the US, the United Kingdom, and Europe, hailed as an award winning, roots music fingerstyle guitar virtuoso and songwriter. Blending the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, old-time jazz and rock, Walker has his own sound and has received numerous awards such as 1st place in the International Blues Challenge Award in Memphis, and the NY Music Award for best instrumental CD. Walker has also been inducted into the NY Blues Hall of Fame.

Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk, and other traditional American music drove him to leave an apartment crammed full of recordings, books and instruments for 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.

"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
