Music Inside Out: Walter 'Wolfman' Washington

Mar 29, 2018

Outside of New Orleans, Walter “Wolfman” Washington may not be a household name. Nevertheless, he’s spent decades touring as a sideman with some of our city’s best-known acts, such as Irma Thomas and Lee Dorsey.

However, as leader of the Roadmasters, and more recently in collaborations with Joe Krown and Russell Batiste Jr., Walter “Wolfman” Washington has emerged one of the most innovative and distinctive guitar players in New Orleans.

Inspired by a lifetime of joys and troubles and over half a century of musical experience, the “Wolfman” keeps on making music that makes you want to howl.
