One of the truly pleasant surprises of 2010 has been the emergence of 7 Walkers, the eclectic quartet that features guitarist/singer/songwriter Papa Mali (a.k.a. Malcolm Welbourne), good ol’ Bill Kreutzmann on drums, Matt Hubbard on keys, harmonica and trombone, and N’awlins funk ’n’ rock legend George Porter Jr. on bass. The group has been getting people boppin’ and groovin’ at clubs and on the jam band festival circuit for much of the year, and now everyone can enjoy their fine, self-titled first album, which came out in early November on Response Records.
