‘Full Circle Tour’
Guitarist/vocalist WALTER TROUT kicked off his FULL CIRCLE 2007 WORLD TOUR in May with major festival appearances in the U.S. and Europe throughout the summer. His first new studio work in five years, FULL CIRCLE (Ruf Records) was named “2006 CD Of The Year” by Blueswax magazine. Walter appears as a guest guitarist on the upcoming Jeff Beck tribute album Freeway Jam – To Beck and Back (Tone Center/July 17, 2007). Other guitarists on the Beck tribute disc include Steve Morse, John Scofield, Eric Johnson, Mike Stern, Warren Haynes and Chris Duarte.
FULL CIRCLE is a celebration of the diverse styles within the blues genre, an inspired journey of musical magic by master musicians creating “on the spot” compositions in the studio. No studio gimmickry, just “one-take” performances that demonstrate Walter Trout’s appreciation and utter mastery of all shades of the blues.
Walter Trout demonstrates his passion for music is just as great today as it was when he started his career as a teenager more than 35 years ago. He considers the new album a tribute to the people and the times that have helped shape his musical career, demonstrating how the many styles within the blues genre can co-exist and mutually enhance each other without fight for rank or authenticity. It’s always been Trout’s dream to break down the barriers between the labels, which get attached to musical genres and show what you call music is not important. Ultimately what the music makes one feel is the only thing that matters to Walter Trout.
Don’t miss your chance to catch Walter’s blistering live show!
