TOBY WALKER (USA)- UK Tour
"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. " - John Platt - WFUV "As a blues guitar player, I am stunned and in awe of Toby Walker's pickin'! Add to that his fine songs and singing and friendly presentation, and it's obvious that Toby Walker is one of the most enjoyable artists in today's Blues World." - Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin Guitarist for the late Muddy Waters "When Toby Walker straps the guitar on, the notes fly at a rate that is dizzying. They dance with speed, grace and precision. The effect is one of steel-like strength. His blues are a flash of muscle and his gentle fingerstyle ballads speak poetry." -Richard Cuccaro - Acoustic Live
