Upcoming shows:


Sunday Brunch Music with special guest Don Armstrong!

 —  —

Monterey Court, 505 W Miracle Mile, Tucson, AZ

Don Armstrong and I go back a ways and definitely share a bond as folk singer-songwriters. We will trade off half hour sets. More details to come.


Wally Lawder and the Stragglers at the Monty

 —  —

Monterey Court, 505 W Miracle Mile, Tucson, AZ

My first band show in a long time! The Stragglers are an ever changing band. I will be joined by Mike Markowitz on mandolin, Suzy Ronstadt on backing vocals and Jim Lipson on percussion.

Thanks for coming to my website. It could be fancier, but I think it does the job!

Here's a music video,  filmed in Hawaii, featuring one of the songs on my most recent CD. This one is called "The Tide".



I feel quite blessed to sit beside the beautiful wellspring of Music, to write songs and to have the privilege of performing them (live or recorded) with and for others. I hope you enjoy visiting my website!
