Description

Come up to The Speakeasy for an Evening of some damn fine blues. Sip on a handcrafted cocktail while kickin' back in the Speakeasy! "Austin Walkin' Cane arrives bearing not only a cool blues calling card but a commanding voice and fiery Delta chops." -The New Yorker

"If you like Muddy Waters, go see Austin Walkin Cane." -Washington Post

Damn Fine Blues! Original & classic delta blues featuring slide guitar and soulful vocals. A blues gumbo repertoire that can conjure up the ghosts of highway 61 & the delta blues experience. Austin Walkin' Cane is a blues singer, songwriter and slide guitarist that performs acoustic solo, duo & electric band sets. Austin Walkin’ Cane has toured Australia, Nepal, Colombia, France, Germany, England, Wales, and the US, from New Orleans, Louisiana to Juneau, Alaska with only a guitar & suitcase in hand.

Austin walked for ten years with a cane due to an arterial venous malformation at birth. While performing on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, a homeless man called out "Hey Walkin' Cane got some spare change for a brother?!" Austin took the jibe as his nickname. In 1996, after years of battling the inevitable, his left leg was amputated below the knee. A year after the surgery, he returned to the music scene stronger & without need of a cane.

The Speakeasy is open 3pm to 1am. Come early and grab a seat... stay late and have a drink! We only have space for the first 25.

Cheers!
