Toby Walker, blues virtuoso, plays WUSB Sunday Street @ Stony Brook's LI Museum

Toby Walker

Sunday, October 20th, 5 P.M.

Opening is Mike Agranoff

(this show is presented in partnership with the Long Island Blues Society)

Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music finger style guitar virtuoso who is well-known not only in the US but also in Europe. Walker blends blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, rock and old time jazz into his own unique style. Jorma Kaukonen, of Hot Tuna, and earlier The Jefferson Airplane, says of Toby: "Flat out...you have to hear this great musician...I'm blown away" and has brought Toby to teach at his Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp.

Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk and other traditional American music drove him to visit the Mississippi Delta, Virginia and the Carolinas where he tracked down some of the more obscure – but immensely talented --- music makers of an earlier era. His most recent album, From The Ground Up, demonstrates his passion for this music as he records his version of blues classics from these early masters. (littletobywalker.com)

Mike Agranoff’s material encompasses traditional ballads and tunes, Tin Pan Alley, contemporaries in the Folk World, heart-stopping spoken pieces, and his own witty pen. It’s delivered with skillful guitar and concertina accompaniment and a sly twinkle in the eye for some truly hilarious songs.

Advance sale is $20 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday October 18th, with tickets at the door for $25 (cash only).

SCANDALOUS Director Mark Landsman Talks NATIONAL ENQUIRER Movie On WUSB’s SOUNDS OF FILM hosted by Tom Needham


The director of SCANDALOUS: THE TRUE STORY OF THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER, Mark Landsman, and Paul Mills, the composer of the new feature film OVERCOMER, are Tom Needham's special guests this Thursday at 6 pm on WUSB's THE SOUNDS OF FILM.

For over 60 years, The National Enquirer has been at the center of the American public's fascination with the rich and famous, as its salacious headlines and coverage of events-ranging from Elvis's death to the O.J. murder trial-have fueled the darkest curiosities of a hungry audience. With rare archival footage and revelations about the alleged blackmail and payoffs used to get their most defining scoops, SCANDALOUS: THE TRUE STORY OF THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER presents an expansive and probing look into the true story of the most infamous tabloid in U.S. history, charting how it pushed its own particular brand of fake news from the fringe to the mainstream.

Named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. They’ve since gone on to perform more than 1000 shows in 45 U.S. states over the past decade where their cross-generational sound has been equally at home in colleges, coffee-houses, concert halls, churches, and living rooms Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals, Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.” They were recently named the “Discovery of the Year” by John Platt at WFUV New York City, and were a featured act at Australia’s National Folk Festival in April 2018. Their sixth and newest album, Yearbook, is led by their signature two-part vocal harmonies, decorated with flares of guitar, ukulele, and mandolin, and centers on songs about being young, growing old, and making peace with the passing of
time. (www.ryanhood.com)
