LITTLE TOBY WALKER- from new York City - this Thursday at The Bullfrog Blues Club Southsea



This Thursday at The Bullfrog Blues Club we are honoured to have the incredible Little Toby Walker from New York. This guy is the real deal, and his previous perfomances at The Bullfrog have always gone down an absolute storm. 

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.

The talent, passion, and soul of a Toby Walker performance reflects these travels. Whether it is telling the humorous and heartwarming tales of other masters, talking about his inspirations, or astounding you with his mastery, his performances are a feast for the senses. The audience is moved in ways that delight them long after the encores. But make no mistake about it - he is to be experienced live. Those fortunate enough to attend one of his shows will vouch for that.

The love Toby has for his craft pushes him to share his history and experience where he has performed his Blues In The Schoools programme, allowing others to share the sounds, sights, and emotions of his unique abilities. His teaching credits include, among others, ex Jefferson Airplane member and founder member of Hot Tuna) Jorma Kasukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch in Ohio and a DVD release with the prestigiousHomespun label entitled “Blues finger picking Freedom”. 
In 2006, 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. This one-of-a-kind series demonstrates the history of blues music and traditions, while teaching the history of African Americans as they migrated from the south into the north.

Toby's mastery of the blues was recognized in Memphis when he won the International Blues Challenge Award. 

"If he doesn't get them with his phenomenal guitar playing or catchy songs, he gets them with his wonderful stories. True entertainers have an engaging spirit that puts a smile on your face. Arlo Guthrie has it, David Bromberg has it, and so does Toby"
