|RedHead Express takes stage in Holyoke|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
“RedHead” Express will hit the stage at Holyoke High School Auditorium Saturday, Oct. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
The event will kick off the 2010-11 Phillips County Arts Council concert season. Season membership ticket sales will begin at 7 p.m.
The “RedHead Express” sound features a wide variety of catchy original songs, bluegrass, traditional, Irish, country, gospel and old-time music. Add to all this clogging and fun family comedy and you’ve got a must-see show.
The nine-member Walker family showcases four daughters’ beautiful harmonies, mom and dad’s vocal depth, backup and guidance to the ensemble, and features three young sons who also play and sing.
Their journey began when the family agreed to rent out their home in Alaska for a bigger dream—to follow their love of music. The Walkers sold their belongings, bought a 38 foot RV, a 27 foot trailer and a dog, and headed south—the only direction one can go from Alaska.
Since 2008 they have performed at the Dutton Family Theater in Branson, Mo. and have been nominated for several awards including “Best Family Show.” They are now in the midst of a 20-plus concert tour of the midwest.
Audiences are wowed by the energy, maturity and skill level of this family. It’s exciting to watch instruments change hands and leads take turns. Seeing this family interact on and off stage is a rich, rewarding experience. The Walker family, aka “RedHead Express,” is doing what they love—together.
