Walter Trout is a true keeper of the blues-rock flame. He used to play with legends like Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker and John Mayal’s Bluesbreakers before he started his solo career. Since 1989 he has been striking out on his own, and in a very impressive manner at that as this is an absolute force on stage. Even though blues-rock is still at the core in his music, Trout tends to include southern rock and country blues just as easily. His music is aptly described as “Working Man’s blues with passion and power”.
In 2017 Walter Trout released his album “Survivor Blues”. This record was inspired when he heard the umpteenth cover of a famous blues song on the radio and thought to himself “does this song really need another cover?” He concluded that it didn’t, so that’s why he decided to focus on obscure tracks of his favorite artists. The name of the album may be partly related to health problems, but with “Survivor Blues” the American guitarist still proves he’s still a force of nature. His latest album will come out in August and will be called “Ordinary Madness”.
Tonight’s support act will be Harlem Lake, formerly known as Dave Warmerdam Band. Harlem Lake is on the heavier side of blues-rock and soul.
