Walt Strauss!

Upattinas Music Series

proudly presents:

An Evening with


Walter Strauss

Upattinas Alumnus 1980

Live in Concert @ Upattinas School

Saturday, November 14, 2009

7:00 p.m. $10 admission

Please join us for a special evening with highly acclaimed musician, Walter Strauss.

Over the last five years, Walter has engaged in unique crosscultural collaborations, touring periodically in a duo with Malian kora virtuoso and 2005 Grammy nominee Mamadou Diabate, and in a duo with Malian kamal'ngoni (hunter's harp) master Mamadou Sidibe. Indeed, Maverick Magazine (UK) credits Walter's music with "an enormous sonic and musical and ethnic palette... world music on guitar." Of late, Walter has been performing solo and with The Walter Strauss Trio – with bassist Sam Bevan (David Grisman, Joe Craven) and drummer/percussionist Kendrick Freeman (Alison Brown, Rob Ickes).

Walter is a graduate of Upattinas School and fresh off a tour of the U.K. and Ireland.
