Product Notes

If you order the Hard Copy of this CD you will have access to an exclusive door that opens up into videos, 3 extra downloadable songs, interviews, stories, pictures and descriptions of the unique vintage instruments I'm playing plus 3 video guitar lessons for all you pickers out there. You get WAY more than what you see!!! Internationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music fingerstyle guitar virtuoso 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 given out by the Blues Foundation in Memphis TN. Walker combines 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, both of which have been getting rave reviews and his latest CD release 'Shake Shake Mama' 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.
