Fairfield Theatre Co. will host a performance by blues rocker Joe Louis Walker at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, at StageOne, 70 Sanford St. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The Chicago-based blues singer, a presence on that city's music scene for decades, delivers "gutbucket blues, joyous gospel, Rolling Stones-style rock crunch and aching R&B," according to a news release.

Walker, who debuted his label Hellfire this year and continues to tour worldwide, has a discography which includes 23 albums and two DVDs. He has won four Blues Music Awards, including the 2010 Album of the Year Award for "Between A Rock And A Hard Place," and has been nominated 43 times.

His greatest influence is the late guitarist Michael Bloomfield.
