+ with four musical performances, over 15 DJs, and community activities in
+ between.</p>

+ <p><a href="http://walkertryan.com">Walker T Ryan</a> started out playing, at 13, as a folk music guy in the Kingston Trio era, and came of age with the music of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly and Greenwich Village folk scene of the very early 1960s. While folk music taught him that songs mattered, it was the blues sounds in the folk music that always attracted him, whatever their form, from Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee to the high, lonesome Appalachian ballads. That's where his road went until 1965, when he saw Son House live, and started down the Delta Road.</p>

Sid Beam and Joe Casprowiak are joined by bassist David Fournier, with Dave Fienberg on piano.
