I just sent off my International Blues Challenge (IBC) application to Memphis. Going January 21-24, 2015. Here is the photo I sent in, and “The Bio”, with a tip of the hat to Ken Babbs for saving me from having to write more lies about myself (also known as “press”).
“Walker T Ryan Just him and his guitar. Walker T is the real deal. A bluesman, a Delta bluesman! He began as a Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly old school folk singer. Then he saw Son House! A lover of old Rock and Roll and country music. He knows hundreds of songs. He works as a solo and makes it look easy, but there’s years of craft and heart and experience and compassion behind his on-stage simplicity. He’s played thousands of gigs for all kinds of people, in places most of us only read about, and he’s entertained them all. Just him and his guitar.” Ken Babbs – Author and Merry Prankster
