Tricia Walker

WORKSHOP LEADER, SAT. SEPT. 21 9AM TO 4PM

  

Tricia Walker is a singer and songwriter whose songs are steeped in the

passion, pain and grace of the American South. Born and raised in

Mississippi, Tricia has become one of the clearest voices of her own time

and place. Her music has been recorded by Faith Hill, Patty Loveless and

Alison Krauss, whose performance of Tricia’s Looking in the Eyes of Love

earned a GRAMMY® award. A recording artist herself, Tricia’s CD, “The

Heart of Dixie,” thoughtfully captures the songwriter’s view of the South

with well-placed lyrics and music reflecting her folk, 

R & B and storytellinginfluences.


She has performed at the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Tin Pan

South Songwriting Festival in Nashville.


Tricia returned to her native Mississippi in 2006 to become director of the

Delta Music Institute, an entertainment industry studies program at her

alma mater, Delta State University. After retiring from DSU in the summer

of 2019, she was awarded the title of Director Emeritus and plans to

develop new musical and creative projects for Big Front Porch

Productions. Tricia was recently honored with the 2019 Lifetime

Achievement Award by the Mississippi Writer’s Guild.
