Walter Trout

Walter Trout’s journey began in 1965.  His soaring warm Stratocaster guitar unites the worlds of blues, rock and pure sonic adventurism, where inspiration and technique meet to create a unique, soulful language.  This New Jersey native placed 6th in the United Kingdom’s BBC Radio One list of the top 20 guitarists of all time! He feels music gives him an opportunity to speak directly into people’s hearts.  With over 20 albums released, Trout continues to dazzle his audiences, making his six-string speak with the eloquence of a traveling tent revival preacher.
