His ethnic background, a blend of Creole, French and Indian, would colour the unique guitar technique which was to become the signature style of Louisiana born Phillip Walker. In the early 1950's Walker, drawn by the magical sound of the blues, began to explore the local juke joints and dance halls, playing frequently with local bluesmen and travelling musicians. He got his first big break on a professional level when he met the legendary zydeco accordionist Clifton Chenier, who took him on the road. The artistic path he followed was paved with success. He provided his pupil Robert Cray with the song Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark, which would become the title track for Cray's million selling album of the same name. In 1999 he got together with old buddies Lonnie Brooks and Long John Hunter to record the aptly named album Lone Star Shootout, which reaches both blues and country charts. Highlights are too many to mention. Currently Mr. Phillip Walker can look back on an impressive career. He is not afraid of breaking rules and may consider himself a true innovator. But most important of all he is still on the road drawing huge blues minded crowds everywhere, with satisfaction guaranteed. The dvd is completed with a biography, a backgroundstory about Swingmaster and a picture gallery with unique historic and recent pictures of Phillip Walker. The concert was recorded in Groningen (The Netherlands), november 1990.
