Internationally acclaimed Toby Walker is an award winning, roots music fingerstyle guitar virtuoso and songwriter who has toured the US, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Blending the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, old-time jazz and rock, Walker has his own style and has received numerous awards, including being the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award in Memphis and the New York Music Award for best instrumental CD. Walker has also been inducted into the New York Blues Hall Of Fame.
Walker is a nationally recognised guitar instructor, having taught at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch, Woody Mann's Guitar Seminars, The Swanannoa Gathering, and the National Guitar Workshop. Walker also has eight instructional DVD's on Happy Traum's Homespun Music Instruction, and has produced hundreds of instructional videos on his own.
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.
«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 engaing spirit that puts a smile on your face. Arlo Guthrie has it. David Bromberg has it. And so does Toby. „
— John Platt — WFUV
“Flat out… you have to hear this great musician… I'm blown away»
Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Airplane
«A fingerpicking guitar virtuoso»
— Happy Traum
