PORTSMOUTH, N.H.Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features Legendary 4x-Blues Music Award-Winning Guitarist, Singer & Songwriter WALTER TROUT and his Acclaimed Band on Sunday October 1 at 7:30 P.M. Walter Trout has been nothing short of prolific over the course of his seven decades on this Earth. Walter’s 30th album, Ride, hit #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, adding more acclaim to an accomplished career that has spanned the globe, and delivered notoriety as one of the great purveyors of the Blues and Blues Rock Music.

“One of the most talented rock and blues players on the world’s stage.”

“If it wasn’t for Walter Trout and Gary Moore, you never would have heard of Joe Bonamassa…”

“His playing style is hypnotic and keeps you hanging on, eager to hear what comes next.”

“‘Ordinary Madness’ is a career-defining, 11-song tour-de-force…”
— AMERICAN SONGWRITER (2020 Album Review of ‘Ordinary Madness’)

From 1973, when WALTER TROUT left his New Jersey home headed to Los Angeles, he has followed a road that afforded him an opportunity to just play, sharing the stage as a sideman with Jesse Ed Davis, Big Mama Thornton, John Lee HookerLowell FulsonJoe Tex, and of course the great John Mayall. Trout’s formative blues influences are well-documented, spanning from Paul Butterfield’s 1965 self-titled debut alongside Mike Bloomfield to John Mayall’s seminal 1966 ‘Beano’ LP with Eric Clapton.

But as he cut his teeth in New Jersey, the young guitarist was also drawn to the maverick songwriters, taking in The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Neil Young’s Crazy Horse. At every step of his career – from backing up giants like John Lee Hooker, joining Canned Heat and Mayall’s Bluesbreakers in the ’80s, then flying solo in 1989 – the stockpile of songs kept growing. When Trout walked away from the Bluesbreakers, he embarked on a solo career that has yielded a catalogue that has established a deep legacy in the world of Blues, Americana, and the realm of revered singer-songwriters.

While many would slow down in their 70’s, Trout continues to deliver inspired recordings, performances, and a voice that articulates relevant ideology and insights into The World that inspires his deep perspective. There’s no autopilot emanating from Walter Trout, but a true sense of growing momentum, elements of surprise, and a repertoire that continues to be more compelling with each new creation.
