Seth Walker Band Makes "Alive After Five" Debut

seth walkerKNOXVILLE -— The Seth Walker Band will perform at the Alive After Five live music series at the Knoxville Museum of Art on Friday, April 29, from 6:00 to 8:30 pm.

Walker's voice and songs resonate with Blues and Roots music. Growing up in rural North Carolina, he was surrounded by a musical, artistic family. Walker honed his skills for 14 years in Austin, Texas, playing among the best blues musicians in the world.

Having opened shows for such icons as B. B. King, Ray Charles, Robert Cray, Jimmie Vaughan, and Aaron Neville, Walker has established himself in the music world as a unique and compelling performer. Seth impressed blues legend Taj Mahal when he opened for him in 2005. "He's playing some hip music, with changes and soul," he commented. "A little, white Ray Charles."

Walker performed solo at three different downtown venues last year in Knoxville. This will be his first performance in Knoxville accompanied by his band.

Admission to this Alive After Five is $9 for general admission and $5 for museum members and college students with ID. Ages 17 and under are admitted free. Alive After Five is sponsored by Cherokee Distributing Company, East Tennessee PBS, Metro Pulse, and WDVX-89.9FM.
