Over the past 10 years, Seth Walker has become one of the most revered modern roots artists in the United States — a three-dimensional talent combining a gift for melody and lyric, a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice, and a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar. His latest studio album, Gotta Get Back, is yet another masterwork that further enhances this reputation.
Growing up on a commune in rural North Carolina as the son of classically trained musicians, Seth Walker played cello long before discovering the six-string in his 20s. When his introduction to the blues, his fate was forever sealed. Instantaneously, Seth was looking to artists like T-Bone Walker, Snooks Eaglin, and B.B. King as wellsprings of endless inspiration. The rest is history.
Perhaps Country Standard Time put it best: “If you subscribe to the Big Tent theory of Americana, then Seth Walker –with his blend of blues, gospel, pop, R&B, rock, and a dash country—just might be your poster boy.”
The Seth Walker Band will be performing at The Birk, 11139 Hwy 202 in Birkenfeld, Friday, September 1, taking the stage at 7:30 pm. Advance tickets can be found at Tickettomato.com for $10.00 advance, with admission at the door going for $15.00.
