Folk-Raga Guitarist Peter Walker to Play UC Irvine
Walker recorded two albums for Vanguard Records in the '60s. In 2006, Tompkins Square Records issued A Raga for Peter Walker, which included four new Walker originals and compositions by younger guitarists such as Thurston Moore, Jack Rose and James Blackshaw. Now the label's releasing Echo of My Soul, Walker's first full-length of new material in 40 years. The master stringsman is touring in support of the album, which reflects his intense interest in flamenco. No less a luminary than Six Organs of Admittance guitar sorcerer Ben Chasny cites Walker as being a primary influence on his style.
