Whidbey Island Center for the Arts invites the community to join with the Walkers at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 21 in celebrating family, the harvest and the cycles of life. Original and traditional songs will be performed by Amy Walker, Paul Houser, Tom and Claudia Walker, and their special guests: Ben Walker, Linda Morris, Randy Hudson, Dave Bokel, and Jennifer Bondelid. An evening of heartwarming, fun-loving, and thought-provoking music by this well-known, musical Whidbey Island family awaits you.

In their own words:

“I learned harmony in the back seat on family road trips. Then later I took up guitar when my drums were stolen out of a church chapel in 1968. If I ever catch that guy, I’m gonna thank him. It has been a real honor to perform sold-out shows with the Rural Characters and raise money for local artists. To be on stage with family is a chance of a lifetime. I’m bringing my whole heart to it.” – Tom Walker

“Hey, me too! I learned harmony in the back seat of the car standing between my parents as they harmonized on the golden oldies of their childhood. My teenage dream was to use music as a tool to help people. I love performing at WICA! It was a privilege to sing with ‘SING!chronicity,’ the first act on the WICA stage 20 years ago, and now singing with my family is icing on the cake!” – Claudia Walker

“Thanks to my talented family, I-three learned to harmonize to the rhythm of turn signals and windshield wipers on those long, lovely road trips. As a youth, I dove into every avenue of performance at Whidbey Children’s Theater and WICA. Now I’m gratefully thriving in L.A. as an actress/singer/creator.” – Amy Walker

“This concert, for me, is the accumulation of all those wonderful experiences from the past to right now. Music brings people together and binds communities. It’s a powerful tool that transcends our daily struggles. I am so blessed to be able to sing with my family and experience our love for one another and this incredible community we call our home.”- Paul Houser
