When Gordon Munding takes the stage, carrying his Natonal steel guitar, he becomes Walkin' Willie. Far from the fast lane of life, Walkin' Willie's music takes you back to the roots of acoustic blues and folk music from rural America. It conjures up the Appalachians and Piedmont regions, where country blues is a kissin' cousin to the Delta blues.
Gordon's playing is influenced by the likes of Roy Book Binder, Doc Watson, Blind Willie McTell, and the slide guitar work of John Mooney and Guy Davis. Though he lives in Rochester, NY, Gordon has absorbed the styles of these artists and carries on the tradition of country blues.
