“Rich Barry is an amazing guitarist and an intuitive performer such grace and amazing skill. His playing was magical with his virtuosity and his oneness with his instrument. He was respectful and yet playful with his audience and won over the lot with his sincerity and passion for what he does. We have had many performers here through the years - he is a cut above, and he connected with us through his presence and his music, leaving us loving what he did- the test of a real artist.”
