Walter Trout given a star in the Blues Walk of Fame
The Notodden Blues Fest is one of the largest and oldest in Europe - an incredibly beautiful event - I was honored and deeply moved today to be given a star in their Blues Walk of Fame - alongside people like BB King, ZZ Top, Charlie Musselwhite and many many more. I will never forget this gesture by the people of Notodden. Thank you so much!

Walter Trout appears on Sari Schorr's new Album
Track 6. Work No More
Vocal: Sari Schorr
Lead guitar: Walter Trout*
This touching song is written by Walter Trout. I originally met Walter at a festival in Oklahoma and then again performing together on the Lead Belly Fest. I’ve always been a big fan of his work. He heard I was recording and graciously said he’d love to contribute to the album. He told me about the song, “Work No More” that he wrote for a woman named Irene. She meant a lot to him and had passed away. It became a clear choice for the album. It was also one of Johnny Winter’s favourite songs.
Produced by Mike Vernon
Special Guests: Innes Sibun, Walter Trout and Oli Brown
A Brand New Music Production
