Wade Walton

b. 10 Oct 1923, Lombardy, Mississippi, USA, d. 10 January 2000, St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Walton was most widely known being a musical barber, engaging people to his store in Clarksdale, Mississippi, but he were only available in music in his youngsters, and toured with minstrel displays in his teenagers. A solid guitarist and harp participant, he created the Kings Of Tempo with Clarksdale’s most well-known R&B designer, Ike Turner, but desired to stay along with his stable function when Turner shifted to a profession as a specialist musician. Paul Oliver documented Walton in his store, performing and playing or stropping his razor in tempo, and he produced an recording for the Bluesville label in 1958. In the mid-60s he produced several recordings, and made an appearance in short movies, and frequently acted as unofficial web host for blues supporters visiting the city. He also performed frequently on the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Celebration.
