Eddie Walker

Comment | The Salutation, Doncaster | Comment by Allan Wilkinson

Eddie Walker came along to play for a small gathering tonight, this being his first gig in Doncaster town for over twenty years.  Blues pickers come from two places; it’s either the United States of America or the North East of England.  Eddie – think in terms of Van Morrison meets Doc Watson – gave us a night of country blues classics from the repertoires of the likes of Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Willie McTell, Mississsippi John Hurt, The Reverend Gary Davis as well as one or two others with standard names as well.
