      .Toby was great as usual. Video and audio was better than expected with only a few minor drops. Very well done!

      Toby does a great job. Well prepared, clear in his instruction, relaxed. A fun event.

      Even though we don't play blues guitar, we loved learning about the finger technique and the thinking behind it. The sound and visuals were excellent, and the show streamed without a hitch on our limited connection.

      It was clear that Toby was well prepared, and it looks as of this would have been a great lesson. Unfortunately, there were serious technical issues with the Concert Window website, and the video and audio kept freezing, cutting out, etc. I have not had these problems with other live webcasts, and the issues seemed to affect all or virtually all the people who were trying to watch.

      Toby Walker was a first class performer. Can't say the same for the streaming via Concert Window. The video was awful, 80% of the broadcast was more like a radio telecast! If there was the intermittent video, it was frame by frame. C'mon CW this is NOT ACCEPTABLE.

      Toby was great as always. Concert Window, however, was *!$*?$$*!

Internationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music fingerstyle guitar wizard who has toured the US, England, Wales, France, Germany, Belgium and Holland. Walker has been featured in the New York Times, the London Sunday Times, the London BBC, Sirius-XM radio and was the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award - Solo division - given out by the Blues Foundation in Memphis TN.

Walker blends the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, rock and old time jazz into his own unique style. Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Airplane says "Flat out... you have to hear this great musician... I'm blown away" and has employed Walker to teach at his famous Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp for 6 years. In 2010 Walker won the NY Music Award for 'Best Instrumental CD,' sharing the honors with Mariah Carey, Rufus Wainwright and Judy Collins among many others.

Walker has recently released three instructional guitar DVD's for the world famous company Homespun Tapes which have been getting rave reviews. His latest CD release - 'What You See Is What You Get' - has been hailed as a shining success in the genre of traditional blues recordings.
Carnegie Hall acknowledged his rare talents and hired him to augment and teach in their "American Roots" program aimed at honor level middle school students.

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. He learned directly from Eugene Powell, James "Son" Thomas,Etta Baker, and R.L Burnside, among others.
