Joe Louis Walker
“A legendary boundary-pushing icon of modern blues.” –NPR Music
We've invited Joe Louis Walker to play Payomet for three of the greatest blues shows ever, and we expect nothing less for his fourth appearance on Saturday, July 17! Joe's guitarmanship, soulful singing, sunshiny smile and deep-belly laugh not to mention his rocking band will keep you warm straight into winter.
A Blues Hall of Fame inductee and four-time Blues Music Award winner, Walker is true powerhouse guitar virtuoso, unique singer and prolific songwriter. Walker’s 1986 debut album announced his arrival in stunning fashion, and his subsequent output has only served to further establish Walker as one of the leading bluesmen on the scene.
Walker is already being referred to within the blues world as a living legend. However, at this stage of his life, Walker profoundly shares, “I’d really like to inspire younger musicians to carry on the legacy of blues/roots music. But play, and do it your way. Don’t be afraid to mix it up. There’s no right, or wrong way. Just the way you wanna express yourself. And above all, ENJOY YOURSELF.” www.joelouiswalker.com
