The Barley Boys have taken their live performances from the local pub scene to the festival stages across the nation. The band has reached a new presence in the Celtic Music scene.
Michael Babick, founder of the band, lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter has been a professional musician for over 25 years. His inspiration for Celtic music comes from researching his lineage; recent trips to Ireland have reinforced his sense of heritage.
New band members with exceptional talent have given Michael the satisfaction of hearing the music the way he always dreamed. The multi-talented musicians bring years of experience and a fire to the already enthusiastic Barley Boys.
The lively lowland fiddling' blends with soothing guitar and vocals along with a foot stompin’ rhythm section featuring bass and drums bringing it all together in a powerful sound they call their own.
The Barley Boys have released 3 CD’s: “The Days of Abundance” in 2000 and “It’s A Long Drive From Ireland!” in 2005. Their third CD “No More Shenanigans” was released in March 2007.
