PRESENTED BY DAVID FERREIRA *LUCKY LUPE
Michael Walker is a singer and guitarist based in UK. He has been playing on the streets for over 12 years, beginning with his brother, the late Jonny Walker, in 2006. Growing up in Paraguay he enjoyed listening to classic tunes and the Latin influences.
Passionately believed in the power of music to bring people together in streets. 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 venues along the famous Matthew Street, 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 with his brother Jonny play songs until the early hours.
Michael Walker keep busking in many cities in UK as Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Lancaster, Beverley and tours across the world.
He still is a fierce advocate for the rights of musicians and street entertainers to enjoy freedom of expression in public spaces. He fully supports and endorses Keep Streets Live Campaign.
Michael Walker played in Sao Paulo in two tours in 2018 and 2019 to promote street music and the rights of performers in public spaces #KSL
“Which towns will I be playing in, what streets will I make my home”.
