Little Toby Walker will perform at 8 p.m. Friday Nov. 19 at the Nelson Odeon, 3 miles east of Cazenovia at 4035 Nelson Rd., Nelson. Tickets are $15 at the door.
Walker is a unique, accomplished fingerstyle guitar virtuoso adept at blues, rags, and hot country picking. A skilled singer and songwriter, Walker draws inspiration from traditional and contemporary music. His passion for the blues and other traditional Amercian music sent him into the deep south where he tracked down old time musicians of an earlier era, drawing inspiration from Etta Baker, Jack Owens and many others.
He shares this music and the stories of his travels in each of his performances. Walker has been eagerly received in concert halls, festivals, schools and coffeehouses throughout the U.S., England and Europe.
Among Walker's credits include teaching in the schools for Carnegie Hall, instructing guitar at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch in Ohio and winning the prestigious International Blues Challenge Award in Memphis. He has twice been featured in the New York Times and has appeared on the main stage at the famous Philadelphia Folk Festival.
