Buddy & Sandy Cleveland are hosting their 11th house concert, Roadhouse Concert XI, when the award winning Blues guitarist, Toby Walker, returns to the Roadhouse in Glenmoore, PA. The concert takes place on June 29, 2019.
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 winner of the Solo/Duo division in 2002 International Blues Challenge sponsored 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. 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.
