Chicago Blues Guitarist and Singer Khalif Wailin Walter will be blowing in from America's windy city, Chicago, to perform at Lancaster's Gregson Centre on Thursday (29th April).

Guaranteed to burn the house down with his electrifying live show, Khalif “Wailin’ Walter lit up the Chicago Blues music scene with his unique style of boogie Blues. He now calls the European market his home base where he was received warmly after several short tour stints there as a sideman.

Khalif's stormy guitar work and brash New Orleans style vocals generate the band’s traditional down-home sound, reminiscent of greats like Freddie King, Albert King, and Albert Collins. Fused with contemporary style and innovative original arrangements, he offers a foot stomping finger snapping Blues that sets the roof on fire.

A guitarist, singer, bandleader, and songwriter Khalif, who has toured extensively across the globe and appeared on stage with such Blues giants as Grammy Winners Taj Mahal and Otis Rush and many more.
