Northeastern Ohio's legendary musician, Hal Walker is truly one of a kind. He's a natural born singer, a songwriter and a musical explorer. His soaring baritone voice is an Ohio treasure. His original songs like ''Home in Ohio,'' inspire audiences to celebrate community, diversity and creativity. Singing America's favorites, Hal Walker is a modern day crooner. His unique, personal style is at once familiar, engaging and delightful.
A talented multi-instrumentalist, Hal composes on the piano, guitar, harmonica and concertina. He introduces audiences of all ages to unique musical instruments from around the world.
