I knew Barry for just a brief period in his life - but I admired his strengths and commitment. RIP


he inspired me as a performer and entertainer with his professionalism,I am very sorry to hear of his death,. Dick Miles

So sad to hear of the death of Barry. I knew him back in the 70's in his folk singing days - a rare and talented character!

I met Barry in Coventry in 1963/4 and he took me round the folk clubs before finally persuading me to get up from the floor at the Troubadours I think it was, I have a photo of Barry and myself performing there. We did this and a few other clubs before I decided I liked singing and wanted to join a group which I did, the Kerries who ran the Cofas Tree Folk club in Coventry. I turned professional whilst living in London and owe it all to Barry . I remember him fondly and talk about his friendship and influence quite often.
Thank you Barry. Gil McWilliams (nee Sowter).


Lovely tributes. Thank you all

In the 60s I booked Barry several times at Wigan folk ckub and he would stay overnight with us. Always a treat and wonderful company. Sadly missed.
