All The Stuff You Love In One Spot
Jul 20 2018
Howdy! I'm Rick Barr, owner of Barr26 Entertainment. It’s a one-stop shop for all of my business endeavors, which include live music, songwriting, voice overs, media production, and a host of other things. I’m putting together this blog and the web site at Barr26.COM to make it easier for my fans and clients to find me, and take their ideas and projects to the next level. Here’s a bit of what I do:
I perform in and around Columbus, Ohio regularly. I play a good mix of country and classic rock, everything from the 50s through 90s. Most of my weekend evenings are spent at wineries, breweries, and other cool places that support live music. I’ll occasionally play a Sunday afternoon somewhere, maybe even a weeknight, but that’s rare. I also host an open MIC every Monday evening that draws a lot of people.
I’m always available for private parties and events, and will travel pretty much anywhere in Ohio.
I’ve been writing and recording music for over two decades, and am the co-coordinator of the Columbus branch of the Nashville Songwriters Association. I’m not doing a whole lot of recording these days, unless it’s for other songwriters here and there, but am actively involved in nurturing talent and helping people with their craft.
This is a slightly newer venture for me, and is what propelled me to leave my 23-year career in IT behind. With the music solidly in place, I was able to invest in proper equipment, training, software, etc. It’s been a fun, yet intense year or so. I regularly narrate audio books , and do other work for commercials, news organizations, and other medium. More details, including samples, are available at ricksvoice.COM.
This is kind of a catch-all category that involves sound and video editing, from fixing cruddy sound files to producing video trailers. I’ll have much more info on that as I move forward.
So, enjoy this blog and the web site. Let me know if you think I can help with your next project!
