WUSB's Sunday Street Series Presents: An evening of blues and brews with Toby Walker

Sunday, July 8th, 7 P.M.

Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music finger style guitar virtuoso who is well-known not only in the US but also in Europe. Walker blends blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, rock and old time jazz into his own unique style. Jorma Kaukonen, of Hot Tuna, and earlier The Jefferson Airplane, says of Toby: "Flat out...you have to hear this great musician...I'm blown away" and has brought Toby to teach at his Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp.

Toby brings with him songs from his newly-released “From The Ground Up,” a twenty four song collection of blues classics from masters like Robert Johnson, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake and others. Of course, we’ll also hear some of Toby’s originals and be treated to his great stories about the songs he plays.

Advance sale tickets at $20 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday July 6th with tickets at the door $25 (cash only)

The Port Jeff Brewing company will provide the brews for your enjoyment with a selection of fine craft beers for purchase. Wine will also be available.

The Sunday Street Series takes place in the Gillespie Room located in the Carriage Museum at The Long Island Museum, 1200 Route 25A in Stony Brook. The Sunday Street Series is a not-for-profit series sponsored by the collaboration of these not-for-profit organizations: WUSB-FM, The Greater Port Jefferson Arts Council and The Long Island Museum.
