AN EVENING FOR WALTER TROUT
A Blues-rock Benefit for Walter Trout at O2 ABC Glasgow The international and Scottish Rock Blues community comes together on Wednesday the 14th of May to present a special benefit show in Glasgow for the bluesrock, legend Walter Trout who is awaiting a liver transplant. This special show features Mud Morganfield ( son of Muddy Waters) and Band, Alan Thomson, Fraser Speirs, Calum Ingram, Charlotte Marshall, + other Special Guests to be announced - along with The Statesboro Blues House Band-featuring Jim Keilt and Al Fleming. Proceeds will go to towards the ailing icon’s emergency liver transplant fund and his subsequent recuperation. The goal of the evening is to pull together some great blues-rock musicians to help raise money and awareness of Walter Trout’s current predicament. This year marked the 25th anniversary of his solo career, but he is currently fighting for his life. It is hoped that he event at O2 ABC Glasgow will be well supported by musicians and fans alike as everyone in the music community comes together to show their love for Walter and to help raise the funds urgently needed for Walter and his Family.
Walter Trout recently confirmed the release of his new CD entitled “The Blues Came Callin’” which will be launched as planned on June 2 despite his continuing health issues."For five years, Walter, Provogue Records, and I have worked towards making Walter’s 25th year as a solo artist a special celebratory event. But The festivities will have to wait! Walter is urgently in need of a liver transplant. It has been heart-breaking for me to watch Walter struggle through these past many months [..] Yet through it all, Walter’s courage and determination continually amazed me. Even as he became a shadow of his former self, after losing 100 pounds and much of his strength, he continued touring, writing, playing, singing, and recording. Music and playing for people offered Walter what it always has: It is therapy and a life- line for him."
