Electric blues guitarist Joe Louis Walker returns to Israel to take the stage in the Galilee and Tel Aviv.

The 66-year-old native of San Francisco has emerged over the last 25 years as one of the preeminent bluesman of his generation, but one who isn’t afraid to mix things up with generous dollops of gospel, r&b and rock ‘n’ roll.
