About Walt

Engaging lyrics and strong melodic singing backed by solid guitar and harmonica.  Roots deep in American folk-rock, his songs unite diverse cultures and people reflecting Western spirit, Appalachian tradition, and Latin rhythms. Walt’s songs share renewal, exuberance, frustration, restlessness, irony, humor, and love for people and life.  His long career in music and entertainment began as a writer and performer in the comedy group “Natural Gas” on Don Kirshner’s Rock concert series.  Some of his musical comedy sketches were considered Kirshner classics.  Walt left comedy, enjoyed a career in education, and returned to his acoustic roots as a solo folk act and in a quartet.  His band, “About Time”, brings the accordion, guitar, bass, and folksy harmony to the song "Rosa" featured here.  Always ready to bring a smile, a laugh, and sometimes a soulful sigh to his music.  Walt brings a lifetime of sharing with working class families, struggles of the young and old, and his own hopeful heartfelt message of love in his songs.  It’s folk like the folk you remember.
