Walsh with two rising stars, Brittany Karlson (bass player & singer, of the Goodbye Girls) and guitarist/mandolin player Korey Brodsky.
"Roots music isn't made in a vacuum. It's the creation of a community, of a circle of friends, of a teacher and a student. It’s something to be passed back and forth to be treasured. As an acclaimed master of American roots music, mandolinist and songwriter Joe K. Walsh knows this better than most. He’s toured with countless artists, collaborated with other master musicians like Darol Anger and the Gibson Brothers, founded progressive stringband Joy Kills Sorrow in the early 2000s, and is currently on faculty at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. His new album, Borderland, is an exercise in subtlety and careful creation."
Peaks Island has a rich tradition of fine musicians - Illustration Institute is proud to welcome Joe to the Faison Artist Residency as he writes for a new album, and to the 5th Maine for a night of live acoustic music you will not soon forget. Joe K. Walsh is sure to light up the room and fill your heart with pure joy.
