Chris Walker

Chris Walker originally studied drama but has worked as a musician for many years, giving a huge number of performances with his own skiffle group. He is an experienced ukuleleator, singer, raconteur, administrator, and tea-chest bass player. Walker’s experience in theater and in venues of a bewildering variety means that he is comfortable bringing both a seriousness and a devil-may-care lightheartedness to performances with the orchestra. He has performed on radio and television and at the Cambridge Folk Festival, Singapore International Arts Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Linz International Street Festival, and many other venues in the UK and Europe. Walker lives in Cardiff, Wales, which, usefully for the orchestra and—like Scotland—is still part of the UK and Great Britain.
