Drink At 4 is a classic. I love everything about it, and it wouldn’t surprise me if someone in Nashville recorded it and got rich. There’s nothing like hearing the original writer sing a great new song, so here’s your chance. — Christine Lavin

Barry Oreck & Friends

 

 

Barry Oreck, a Brooklyn, NY singer songwriter has had a long career in music, dance, and performance art. Barry has played solo and with various bands and has written music and created sound and text scores for dance and theater pieces (nicollandoreck.com). Playing in and around New York City, he works with a strong cadre of seasoned musical collaborators. His band, Barry Oreck and Friends, features the core quartet of Barry (guitar and vocals) Jesse Miller (guitar and vocals), Adam Armstrong (bass) and Rima Fand (fiddle and vocals). Other frequent guests include Brooklyn standouts Kevin Garcia (percussion), Bob Telson (accordion) and Rob Meador (mandolin and vocals). 

Barry grew up in the Chicago folk and blues tradition studying with folk luminaries at the famed Old Town School of Folk Music and soaking in the exploding blues scene. Steeped in new and traditional music and protest songs, he writes songs in a variety of styles from bluesy finger picking to driving bluegrass. His songs have been described as, "“a unique collection of songs full of wry, thought-provoking lyrics, sweet harmonies, with a satisfying touch of funk.”
