KALA Presents


KALA Presents:
ROOTS BLUES ARTIST SETH WALKER
August 23rd, 8pm, $20 at KALA

National roots/blues/soul artist Seth Walker returns to the KALA stage on tour with his latest album “Are You Open,” Friday, August 23 at 8 p.m. Seth Walker and his trio have been a staple in the roots/blues world including multiple support slots for The Wood Brothers, and performances on Delbert McClinton's Sandy Beaches Cruise.

KALA’s intimate stage proved to be the perfect venue for the Seth Walker Trio, with every groove of acoustic roots and soul resounding. A sold-out show, audience members called for a soon return!

Over the past 10 years, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered modern roots artists in the United States; a three dimensional talent who combines a gift for melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar.

Supported by stand-up bass and drums, Walkers an “accomplished guitarist and an even better singer, distilling the soul of Ray Charles, the Southern boy roots charm of Delbert McClinton, and an uptown blues turn of phrase (à la Percy Mayfield) into his own distinct voice, ” states DC Music Mag The Vinyl District.

”Are You Open?” marks Seth Walker's tenth studio recording, produced by the Wood Brothers Jano Rix, culling from his time spent in Havana, New Orleans and Nashville, the album is a soulful brew of roots music from the Americas and beyond. Check out www.sethwalker.com

“Are You Open?” follows 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Gotta Get Back,’ a stunning collection that found Walker excavating the roots of his love affair with music by reuniting the family that first sparked his fire as a child. That album traced its origins back to Walker’s native North Carolina, where he grew up on a multi-family commune and studied classical violin and cello before ultimately discovering his passion for soul, jazz, blues, and folk. He’d go on to deftly mix all those genres and more in his work as a solo artist, organically building up a celebrated two-decade career that’s earned him praise everywhere from The Washington Post to NPR, who hailed his "hard-driving" songs and "sweet tenor," in addition to landing him dates with The Mavericks, The Wood Brothers, Raul Malo, Paul Thorn and Ruthie Foster, among others.

Doors open 7:30pm, show at 8:00pm. KALA is located at 1017 Marine Drive in Astoria (across the street from Himani's Restaurant). Full bar, Ages 16+ accompanied by an adult please.
