Michael Walker and how we got started
The Rabon Creek Bluegrass band was formed out of a long learning process that the founder of the band, Michael Walker, has trekked. After having to travel for work, Michael was looking for a way to relax and spend time with his two-year-old daughter. While spending almost a month in Springfield, Missouri for work, Michael walked into a music store and sat down and held almost every guitar in the store. It was obvious that the Lord had a mission in mind for Michael. After returning home, Michael finally got a guitar and started learning at home. One day while visiting a local music store, Michael was invited to join one of the local acoustic jams. Although Michael had never sang in front of others before, all of the encouragement of the other folks at these local open jams, Michael found himself playing guitar and singing lead in several small groups. After roaming from group to group for a couple of years, Michael decided to put a band together to sing in churches and special events. With the blessing of the Lord coming down like rain, Michael decided to shift the direction of his music to glorify his Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Out of that, came the Rabon Creek Bluegrass Band.
