b. 11 February, 1937, Welsh, Louisiana, USA. Originating from
the Port Arthur area of Louisiana, Walker worked in many bands
building a reputation as a performer of note. Moving to Los
Angeles he recorded for the small Elko label before finally
having an album made up from tracks recorded for producer Bruce
Bromberg during 1969-72. These were released on Hugh Hefner's
Playboy label. Later albums confirmed promise and Walker has
become one of the most effective of the Modern blues performers.
His varied background renders him capable of playing in many
styles, from the Texas blues of Lightnin' Hopkins through the
Louisiana swamp sound, up to the most sophisticated
offering of writers like Dennis Walker. He is married to blues
singer Ina Beatrice Be Bop Walker.
