In the 1920's, wing walkers would move on the wings of an airplane during flight in a daring, improvised and acrobatic performance, constantly adjusting to the shifting winds of the moment and without the use of any safety gear. It is this spirit that inspired guitarist Michael Kalter, violinist Doug Hamilton and bassist Noah Cope to adopt the The WingWalkers as the name of their acoustic trio. This string ensemble speaks the vernacular language of the great American improvisational traditions. The group blends folk, bluegrass, Americana and swing to create a unique and progressive style which it lends to original compositions, as well as a diverse pool of covers by artists such as Gnarls Barkley, Sting, The Young Bloods, Chris Issac, Janis Joplin, The Band, Paul Simon & Peter Rowan to name only a few!
The WingWalkers; each song a new adventure, each performance a new conversation.
Together the WingWalkers walk the musical wing
