Walter Bannon

Walter Bannon, of Bridgton, Maine, has been writing songs and performing most of his life.  His songs opened doors to meet a US President and perform on the US Capitol steps.   They have also traveled the internet in support of child protection agencies.  His recording of Don’t Shake Jake is part of the shaken baby awareness program.  His Christmas song, I Wouldn’t Trade, plays across Cracker Barrel restaurants’ dining rooms during the holiday season. 

Walt’s first book, Digger Down, delighted antique bottle collectors as he shared stories of his digging adventures.  Digger Down was published by Publish America in 2005.  The White Pocketbook turns to the serious topic of his mother’s amazing path to survival during WWII while growing up in occupied Belgium.  While work on a music video is ongoing and a soundtrack has been released, Walt dreams of one day seeing a movie come from this survival story that parallels Anne Frank’s plight.
