Benny Walker will open for Christone “Kingfish” Ingram at The Corner on Sunday 10th April.
Yorta Yorta singer-songwriter, Benny Walker is the real deal. He’s got the lot; the voice, the songs, the showmanship, and the looks to kill. His love songs and epic tales are mixed with passion for people, the land, summer vibes and deep grooves that reach the soul. Said to possess one of the best voices in Australia, Benny Walker never fails to take you on an emotionally driven sonic journey.
Benny has performed alongside some of Australia’s finest, including Archie Roach, Blue King Brown, Tim Rogers, and Vika & Linda Bull, and he was awarded Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Award for Best New Talent in 2012. In recent years, he has performed at some of the country’s best-loved festivals, including Moomba, Woodford, St Kilda Festival and Blue Mountains Music Festival and, of course, Bluesfest.
