Wally to play show with Freedy Johnston – August 15+16 @ Sings Like Hell Series – Santa Barbara + Hotel Cafe in L.A.
A gifted songwriter whose lyrics paint witty, poignant portraits of characters often unaware of how their lives have gone wrong, Freedy Johnston appeared out of nowhere in the early ’90s and quickly established himself as one of the most acclaimed new singer/songwriters of the day.
Wisconsin-born percussionist Wally Ingram is the rock world’s version of Kevin Bacon & there aren’t too many degrees of separation between him and just about every star on stage over the past decade or so. If ever there were a drummer in demand enough to be cloned, it would be Wally! He’s been a favorite of everyone from Sheryl and Eric Burdon to Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, David Lindley and more.
