Austin Walkin' Cane

Blues from the Heart of Cleveland,  with Austin Walkin’ Cane and Kristine Jackson

Outstanding guitar, slide guitar and Dobro skills, in conjunction with powerhouse vocals and a lot of hootin’ and hollerin’, have made Austin Walkin’ Cane one of “Cleveland's favorite frontman.”

 His recent placement during the 2009 International Blues Festival in Memphis has landed him unique invitations to perform at the Blues on Broadband Festival in the Gold Coast and the Himalayan Blues Festival in Nepal. With an early career as a trumpet player backing up world class vocalists around the world, Kristine Jackson has since made a name for herself as not only a guitar player, but as a studio musician and songwriter as well. She has opened for the best of the best, including B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Mavis Staples, Robert Cray, and many more. Kristine and Austin have been friends for nearly 15 years, and join together on stage to share their friendship through an awesome combination of creativity, genuine felt blues, songwriting and a good ol’ time.
