PRESENTED BY RAFAEL GUERRA *AUDMO
Michael Walker is a singer and guitarist based in 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 and the Latin influences.
Believed in the power of music, his passion for music took him to Liverpool University on Performing Arts Degree. This gave him the platform to root 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 Walker keeps busking in many cities across the UK as Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Lancaster, St Albans, Beverley and many more.
He still is, a fierce advocate for the rights of street musicians to enjoy freedom of expression in public spaces. He fully supports and endorses Keep Streets Live Campaign *KSL.
Michael Walker played in Sao Paulo during his tour 2018 to promote street music and the rights of performers in public spaces.
“Which towns will I be playing in, what streets will I make my home”.
