This Duluth native was the first graduate on the mandolin at Berklee College of Music in Boston (where he now teaches). A co-founder of the group Joy Kills Sorrow, he's gone on to work with bluegrass band the Gibson Brothers and folk icon Jonathan Edwards as well as releasing solo albums.
His latest project, Mr. Sun, features legendary fiddler Darol Anger and blends bluegrass and jazz. Guitarist Lincoln Meyers, a frequent collaborator of Walsh's, joined him in the studio with us on June 24, 2016. The two performed the same night at the Incredible Rhubarb After Dark event at the Red Herring Lounge and the following afternoon as part of CHUM's annual Rhubarb Festival.
