      Fun show from start to finish. Toby connected with us, brought fresh material, and even gave few tips for the guitar players in the audience.

      What was your favorite part of the performance? Toby's arrangement of Ain't Misbehaving and also the story telling part.

      I'm sure glad I saw the email about this Concert Window event. I always enjoy his performances, and this is the first on-line one I've seen. Keep it up!

      Fun mix of songs, stories, and styles. Worked to include audience by paying attention to comments, so had a personal aspect that was nice. I'll be a part of future performances!

"Toby Walker is that rare performer that takes your
breath away." - David Massingill

"Your music is just fantastic and beautiful."
...Sam Phillips, Sun Records.

Internationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music fingerstyle guitar wizard who has toured the US, England, Wales, Scotland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, 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. 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 eight instructional guitar DVD's for the world famous company Homespun Tapes which have been getting rave reviews. His latest CD release - 'Mileage' - 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.
