Rock Tavern Chapter: Jim Barbaro

March 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Rock Tavern Chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild is pleased to be featuring Jim Barbaro.
Jim’s songs are like vignettes or sketches, and each is a musical chapter that fuses rock, classical,western ,jazz and folk. Whatever the style, the underlying mood is always passionate,romantic and melodic.When you get your hands on a Jim Barbaro CD,you get a healthy pallette of spanish guitars, violin,cello,dobros trumpet, pedal steel as well as traditional rock and folk instruments.It all gets topped off and woven together by Jim’s dynamic, full throated vocals that range from deep and souful to rough ‘n’ gritty to satiny smooth. In a marketing driven industry where artists are discouraged from jumping from genre to genre, Barbaro is not afraid to take that leap and explore the many worlds music has to offer. And all you adventurous and multi-dimensional music lovers are free to come along for the ride.

Open mic performances will be available to all. Cost of admission for this event is $7 ($6 for Folk Guild members and seniors).  Signup begins at 7 and open mic begins at 7:30.  The featured performance is expected to begin at approximately 8:30.
