Walter Trout



BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine Street, Florence MA)

With a raw, biting, overdriven tone, flawless technique, and relentless energy, Walter Trout is among the world's most formidable blues guitarists. His high-profile stints with Canned Heat and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers during the 1980s led to acclaimed solo albums including Telling Stories in 1991 and Transition in 1992. 1994's Tellin' Stories drew critical notice Stateside for the first time. 2000's Live Trout was his first charting album. After 2013's Luther's Blues: A Tribute to Luther Allison, Trout was sidelined with cirrhosis and Hepatitis C and required an organ transplant. During recuperation he penned Rescued from Reality: The Life and Times of Walter Trout with journalist Henry Yates. He returned with 2015’s Battle Scars and resumed touring. 2017’s We’re All in This Together marked his first number one outing, a run he continued with 2019's Survivor Blues and 2020's Ordinary Madness. Ride appeared in 2022.
