Bobby BlackHat

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

One of the region’s most prolific and recognizable musicians, Bobby "BlackHat" Walters, harmonica player, vocalist, and songwriter has been performing for over 40 years. His 6th album, “Put on Your Red Shoes,” was released late in 2018. He’s built a trademark style that blends the influences of Chicago, Memphis, Piedmont, and Delta style blues along with a little Gospel that he builds into original, often quite timely works such as “BlackHat for President,” “Gubment Shutdown Blues,” Run Baby Run,” and “HRBT Blues” among others. Most recently added to his many awards and accolades, Bobby BlackHat was named the 2019 “Best Blues” recipient by VEER Magazine. Bobby BlackHat brings together the finest blues musicians in Hampton Roads to perform classic, modern, as well as original blues tunes that will keep your toes tappin’ and your hips shakin’ all night long. Band members include Tom Euler (guitar), Brian Eubanks (bass), Michael Behlmar (drums), and Lucy Kilpatrick (keyboards).
