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 first-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. 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 six 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 several instructional guitar DVDs for the world-famous company Homespun Tapes; and 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.
