Barrie the Vagabond
I sing and accompany myself on guitar and harmonica. I also play instrumentals for receptions and ceremonies.
My playlist ranges from popular classics like Eagles, Beatles, Neil Diamond, Elvis to Americana/folk tunes to my Sinatra Songbook. I'm equally comfortable playing background at a reception or leading a singalong at a festival. The objective is to entertain.
Great for business, weddings, parties, and festivals.
Price Range: $150-750
What to Expect
My audiences have come to expect a true professional who shows up on time with quality equipment (BOSE PA), and a play list that people actually enjoy. My MARK TWAIN shows always lead to referrals and audiences seem to like the Sinatra Songbook almost as much as I like playing it. And back home in Winston Salem, they call me a blues guy. I can live with that.
I've been entertaining audiences since Elvis was skinny. I've appeared in more than 20 plays, 2 movies, and dozens of cable television commercials., so working a room is second nature. I sing a wide variety of songs including my own compositions. I've done one-man shows complete with AV dozens of times to audiences including churches, schools, business groups, libraries, and cultural groups. Pleasing the audience is what I'm all about whether it's business events, cultural programs, parties, weddings, or house concerts.
I continue with my MARK TWAIN one man show and I'm a regular at Old Salem and the Piedmont Farmers Market in Colfax

No tech problems with me. I can run my BOSE PA on an inverter and I carry a 50' extension cord and duct tape.
