Joe Louis Walker @ Caffe Lena
February 16 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
A Blues Hall of Fame inductee and six-time Blues Music Award winner, NPR described Joe Louis Walker as “a legendary boundary-pushing icon of modern blues.” His output spans the gamut of American Roots music, and he is regarded as one of his generation’s greatest bluesmen. A brilliantly lyrical guitarist, soulful singer, and prolific songwriter, Walker has recorded with Ike Turner, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, and Steve Cropper, opened for Muddy Waters and Thelonious Monk, hung out with Jimi Hendrix, Freddie King, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and was a close friend and roommate of Mike Bloomfield.
Set to release on February 17th, Walker’s newest album “Weight of the World,” showcases the depth of his influences and the prowess with which he commands different genres.
