  Greg Willis and Johnny Walker fire up the stage with their one-of-a-kind guitar/harmonica duo performances. They cover a wide range styles that reflect the influence of artists such as Little Walter, Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Taj Mahal, and Big Bill Broonzy in their eclectic mix of standards and originals.
  As a finger style and slide guitar player Willis combines blues, ragtime and bluegrass techniques to get his own unique and highly energetic sound. Walker is a master of blues harp having played since the tender age of six and is enormously popular in his home territory of Plumas County where he is known for his flamboyant playing and is considered the "most invited" and sought after musician around.
  Willis and Walker have performed in concerts, festivals, radio, and television in northern California, Nevada, and Oregon. They have both been recorded, together and individually, as guests on other artists albums and in several film scores.
Walker is popular on the cowboy poetry circuit and has performed alongside Jim King. His film credits include the independently produced drama "Dam California." Willis has scored several films in the Wild Lens web series "Eyes On Conservation." The film "On the Trail" which includes tracks by Walker, Willis, and local violin player Leslie Mink was aired on PBS in the spring of 2016.
  Willis and Walker are often joined by other musicians to form new combos. Their latest iteration "Band Without A Name" includes trombone player Chase Ramirez and drummer Debbie Hopkins.
