Walker Williams

Friday, August 2- Free Concert with price of General Admission

Walker's country roots date back to his very early years. His father taught him to sing and play guitar at the ripe old age of six! It wasn't long before he was singing and playing along with Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Tom T. Hall on the radio.

After singing in various choirs in high school, Walker was offered a music scholarship to attend Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado. Walker, however, felt the need to perform on a much larger scale. He left college to pursue a singing and acting career. He found the best of both worlds in music theatre in Los Angeles, where he was featured in several national commercials, a few television episode appearances and even a film or two.

In 1991, Walker left the theatre and started performing as a single, in bars, restaurants and private parties. He performed a mixture of Top 40 country, older country and a little bit of country-rock. Eight months later, he formed The Walker Williams Band.
With his truly wonderful singing talent, along with his ability to entertain, Walker's popularity spread throughout Colorado. Within the first year, he was playing some of the better clubs in the Denver Metro area, including the award-winning Grizzly Rose, where he now holds status as "house band", and also traveling into the mountain resorts.

By the second year, Walker was sharing the stage with country's best, opening shows for such headliners as Willie Nelson, Billy Dean, Sawyer Brown, Alan Jackson and Merle Haggard, and began spreading his touring circles into New Mexico, Arizona and Wyoming.

Everywhere Walker travels and performs, he wins over new fans at each stop, and many long time supporters follow him from city to city on his tour and have been affectionately dubbed "The Walker Stalkers".

The Stick® is a unique musical instrument invented by Emmett Chapman in 1969. It consists of a long fretboard with ten or twelve strings spanning a range of bass and guitar. Sound is produced when the strings are “tapped” against the frets by the fingers. An electronic pickup is used to amplify the sounds. This technique allows the musician to use both hands to play multiple parts, such as bass lines, melody lines, and chords, much like a pianist plays. All this while having the expressive subtleties that strings allow, such as vibrato, bends, slides, pull-offs, etc. From deep growing bass notes up to high shimmering pitches, the Stick offers an extended range that most other stringed instrument barely cover.
