Brighouse Resident, Barry Smith plays flute guitar and Irish style tin whistle. For his showcase Barry brings two excellent guitarists of different styles to accompany him and support a wide varied programme.
Barry writes songs and melodies; many with Yorkshire references. These include ‘The Days we Walked from Burnsall Bridge’, ‘The Ghost of Swinsty Hall’ & ‘Swaledale and the Wharfedale Jig’… to name but a few. He has performed both solo and with other musicians at many folk clubs and festivals in the Yorkshire area.
Quite respectful of his Irish roots, Barry particularly enjoys playing traditional Irish and Scottish tunes and some of these will be part of this intimate concert at the Smith Art Gallery at Brighouse Library. And of course Beatles material too!
