"The Art Walker Band is composed of a group of friends that have been getting together for Art Walk for a number of years. Once when we were playing at a Bluegrass festival, someone introduced us as the Art Walker Band and that's how we got our name.
For First Friday, we are happy to have Cory Welch on dobro, Randy Lent on mandolin, Vicki Ward on accordion, Dave Prentiss on percussion, Darryl Cornell on guitar and vocals, and June Cornell on vocals. We'll be playing Bluegrass, Folk music, and some Rock and Roll. We are looking forward to playing at the Steinbeck Center," Darryl.
