Walker Fields is a musical project headed by Brad Senne of Minneapolis. It explores the realms of folk, blues and delta blues music.
Walker Fields's first album, Sky Falls In, was released in 2010, with a sound reminiscent of the likes of Woody Guthrie and dust bowl-era songs. The 2011 follow-up, Gettin' By, veered towards delta blues sounds inspired by Mississippi Fred McDowell and many other similar musicians.
Gettin' By was preceded by a free-download-only live album entitled Live at Aster Cafe. In a review for the City Pages' MP3 of the Week feature, Andrea Swensson praised the album, calling it "a dusky, stomping performance of Guthrie songs and original tunes reminiscent of a softer Charlie Parr."
Gettin' By named top album of 2011 by Duluth News Tribune
" Brad Senne (a.k.a. Walker Fields) showed an eerie, almost channeling ability to bring the feel of the Delta north up the Mississippi. “Gettin’ By,” released just a couple of months ago, had the rawness of Fred McDowell and the rough and tumble hill-country mojo of R.L. Burnside rolled into one. " - John Ziegler, Duluth News Tribune (Dec 29, 2011)
