About the Event
A native of San Antonio and an Austinite for years, Wilkins is one of those artists who can only be fully understood through a grasp of his entire body of work, which is substantial. He emerges as a man of wisdom, a beacon for the rest of us, maybe even a healer.
To his credit, Wilkins has 9 solo records, 4 records with The Mighty Mystiqueros, 1 with his wife Tina, and there's a new live record with his friend Kevin Welch.
Three things you should know about Walt: (1) he lived in Nashville for 11 years (he got back to Texas as quick as he could), (2) he has been called the John Steinbeck of music, and (3) he produced both Terry Klein CDs, most recently, TEX
