Come hear Barry King sing some of his favorites! Barry is one of Jericho’s own local treasures. He grew up hanging around radio stations in the 60’s, and started playing guitar when he was 12, which he says “is a while ago now.” He has a particular love for Folk and Folk Rock; his musical influences range from the Beatles and the Hollies, to Crosby, Stills and Nash and the Eagles, to Amos Lee and Chris Stapleton. You never know what might pop up in the set list!
