PRESENTED BY RAFAEL GUERRA *AUDMO
Michael Walker is a singer and guitarist based in Leeds, UK. He has been playing on the streets of the UK for over 12 years, beginning with his brother, the late Jonny Walker, in 2006. Growing up in Paraguay he enjoyed listening to classic tunes like The Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel and he enjoyed the Latin influences.
Began playing guitar in early teens, he passionately believed in the power of music to unite and bring people together.
His passion for music eventually took him to Liverpool University where he took on a Performing Arts Degree. This gave him the platform to root some of his self-taught techniques with professional guidance and input. He played in the Cornerstone Theatre and at venues along the famous “Matthew Street” in Liverpool.
Michael Walker began busking and fell in love with it as a means of performance. Most Friday and Saturday nights he would hit the streets of Liverpool and, together with his brother, play songs for the revellers until the early hours.
Michael keep busking in many towns and cities across the UK including Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Lancaster, St Albans, Beverley and many more.
He was, and still is, a fierce advocate for the rights of musicians and street entertainers to enjoy freedom of expression in public spaces in towns and cities. He fully supports and endorses the work of Keep Streets Live (KSL).
