Album Notes
Indalo Wind's second CD, From Far and Wide, covers a lot of musical ground - from Irish traditionals to Japanese pop, Italian love songs to the Grateful Dead, and unique originals as well.

Indalo Wind is an acoustic ensemble led by father and son, Eric and Jacob Walter. On this recording, they are joined by the Indalo Wind Consort, including Steve Cleveland (accordion), Mike Preston (resonator guitar), and Dennis Elmer (vibraphone). Specializing in eclectic instrumental music, Indalo Wind offers up a unique blend of folk, blues, classical, and jazz, with melodic seasonings from around the world.

With a repertoire that includes traditional songs from Italy, Ireland, and the Americas - as well as gypsy swing, Renaissance dance, flamenco, Japanese pop, and a host of unique originals - Indalo Wind plays music that is dramatically diverse, poetic, energetic, and thoughtfully entertaining. 

JACOB WALTER is a junior pursuing the International Baccalaureate Diploma at Tigard High School in Tigard, Oregon. He is a prize-winning guitarist and composer and a member of the National Honor Society. He studies flamenco guitar with internationally acclaimed teacher and performer, Julia Banzi. He is employed as an intern at the Youth Music Project in West Linn, Oregon. Jacob released his debut solo album, Surfing in the Rain, in September 2015.

ERIC WALTER is a poet, performer, and musician whose interests span diverse artistic worlds. He received a BA in Theatre from Reed College in 1983 and worked for many years as an actor, director, and producer in Oregon, North Carolina and Colorado. He began writing poetry in 1992 and has since authored six books. He has played in numerous bands and performance ensembles, and created soundtracks for theatre, dance, video, and spoken word projects.

About the Name
“El indalo is a symbol well-known in the Almería province of Spain. It appears in rock art panels of the region that date back approximately 6,000 years. In modern times it connotes magic and good fortune. In 2008, not long after Jacob and I started playing music together, we were privileged to visit one of these ancient sites on a stormy day in the foothills of the Sierra Maria near the beautiful village of Velez Blanco. We were so impressed by the experience, we wanted the name of our band to reflect the wonder of that place and the magical energy of that enigmatic figure. Such were the first stirrings of Indalo Wind." (EW)
