Palm Arts is proud to present American electric blues singer, guitarist, and songwriter Seth
Walker at the newly christened Bob Saunders Theatre in the Michael D. Palm Theatre Complex
Saturday, January 27th, 2018 at 7:30.
Over the past 10 years, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered
modern roots artists in the United States; a three dimensional talent comprised by a gift for
combining melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a
true blue knack for getting around on the guitar. His latest studio album, Gotta Get Back ,
produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers, is yet another masterwork that further expands
upon this reputation.
Growing up on a commune in rural North Carolina, 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 came via his Uncle Landon Walker, who was both a musician and disc jockey, his fate
was forever sealed. Instantaneously, Seth was looking to artists like T-Bone Walker, Snooks
Eaglin, and B.B. King as a wellspring of endless inspiration. The rest is history. He’s released
seven albums between 1997 and 2015; breaking into the Top 20 of the Americana charts and
receiving praise from NPR, American Songwriter, No Depression and Blues Revue , among
In addition to extensive recording and songwriting pursuits, Seth is constantly touring and
performing at venues and festivals around the world. Along with headline shows, he’s been
invited to open for The Mavericks, The Wood Brothers, Raul Malo, Paul Thorn and Ruthie
Foster, among others.
“We’re excited to have such an amazing talent coming to Telluride this winter” says Palm Arts
Programming Director Chris Vann. “Seth’s rootsy style of blues music is perfect for Telluride. It’s
going to be a great party.”
Seth Walker is currently splitting his time between New Orleans and New York City after
previously residing in Austin and Nashville. He’s used those experiences wisely, soaking up the
sounds and absorbing the musical lineage of these varied places. With a bluesman’s respect for
roots and tradition, coupled with an appreciation for—and successful melding of—contemporary
songwriting, Seth sublimely incorporates a range of styles with warmth and grace.
