Warrior, survivor, icon.  If there were Grandmasters in the world of music – Walter Trout would surely be among them.  From his early days in 1970’s LA supporting the likes of John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton and Percy Mayfield –  through to his stint playing guitar for the seminal Canned Heat (1981-1985) – the turning point for this gifted musician was his invitation to join British blues giant John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, where he paired up with fellow six-string virtuoso Coco Montoya.  Emboldened and encouraged by Mayall, Walter began what would become his own very successful solo career in 1989.

34 years and 30 albums later, through well-documented sickness and health, 72 year old Walter Trout has emerged stronger, more determined and as brilliant as ever.  His passion for music and connecting with other music lovers through his songs and incendiary live performances, and the support and love of his family is both his lifeline and his inspiration.  Performing with Walter on the tour will be his son, Jon Trout on 2nd guitar, alongside a hand-picked group of other top musicians.
