Bill MacKay & Ryley Walker
Bill MacKay & Ryley Walker
Bill MacKay & Ryley Walker's colorful and inspired duo continues to evolve. The guitarist-songwriters expand on their restless, exploratory nature & psych-folk-blues-raga mix that populated their critically-lauded 2015 record Land of Plenty by diving headlong into an even wider panorama in their ongoing tandem creative journey. Their forays into folk idioms remain true & fresh, and rumor has it a new record is in the works. For this show, the duo will be playing music from Land of Plenty, as well as recent & as-yet-unrecorded compositions. MacKay and Walker's concerts are cinematic music-making that is not to be missed.

"…this guitar masterclass from MOJO rising star Walker and Pittsburgh songwriter MacKay meanders through fuzzy coptic blues, waltzes and spellbinding psych haze." - Andrew Male, MOJO

"Land of Plenty – a fantastic new recording culled from the duo’s series…. potent traces of Indian classical ragas, American primitive fingerpicking, old-timey mountain music, and traditional British folk course through the pair’s tightly integrated playing, bits of improvisation showing their almost preternatural interaction and subtle give-and-take…." - Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
