Original & classic delta blues featuring slide guitar and baritone vocals. A blues gumbo repertoire that blends in jazz, folk, soul & rock 'n' roll. Austin "Walkin' Cane" Charanghat is a blues singer, songwriter and slide guitarist that performs acoustic solo, duo & electric band sets. Walkin' Cane has travelled all over the country from New Orleans, Louisiana to Juneau, Alaska and has acquired various blues/instrumentalist awards over the years. Austin walked for ten years with a cane due to an arterial venous malformation at birth. While performing on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, a homeless man called out "Hey Walkin' Cane got some spare change for a brother?!" Charanghat took the jibe as his nickname. In 1996, after years of battling the inevitable, his left leg was amputated below the knee. A year after the surgery, he returned to the music scene stronger & without need of a cane. In 2002, Austin & Karen Starks were married at Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee and began recording his 706 Union Ave. cd at the legendary studio immediately after the ceremony. "The thought of recording & getting married in the same room where many of my heroes took their first steps was incredible." Austin "Walkin' Cane" is proud to be sponsored by National Reso-Phonic Guitars, Dr. Z Amplifiers & Ernie Ball Strings.
