Album Notes
After one listen you will understand why for the last few years, XM and Sirius Satellite Radio have been playing this CD everyday on both the Kid's channel and on the Spa channel.

While soothing and relaxing for the very young, the album also provides a unique listening experience for adults, as the music transports the listener with instruments and musical imagery suggestive of the lands from which these songs have come.

Night Wheel features Michael Barry on a variety of guitars from acoustic to baritone. He is joined by a collection of New York musicians on instruments ranging from bamboo flute to cello and mandolin. The album features original arrangements of lullabies collected from around the world, including Tibet, Africa, Ireland, the United States, Cuba, and yes, even Tonga. 10% of the proceeds benefit the Tibet Fund's Noenga School for Disabled Tibetan Children.

This music is like a gorgeous massage for your soul.
This music is like a gorgeous massage for your soul. It gently eases you into your mellow. Plus I really like the fact that some of the money from the sale of Night Wheel goes to help Tibetan kids in need. What a great idea – great music for a great cause! That’s a double feel good. It’s like having two big scoops of ice cream on your cone. Now I know why the Buddha is laughing. Right on, Michael Barry and Friends!

Indulge and luxuriate in the nuances and majesty
Night Wheel gives us license as adults to indulge and luxuriate in these lullabies. If these were candy they'd be rich, creamy chocolate. Be ready for the surprise nuances of melody and harmony. Each cut takes you to a place of wonder and this CD is truly a gift. Thank you to the producers who made this dream a reality; grateful thanks and admiration to the musicians, your art is majesty.


Beautiful, transporting and evocative!
Beautiful, transporting and evocative! An engaging collection of lullabies from around the world. A musical statement of how all humanity is bound by common passions across cultures and geography.
And thank you for providing an avenue to aid destitute Tibetan children with my purchase!
This CD is not just for kids. The lush instrumentation and sophisticated arrangements please the adult ear as well!

J. Andrew Dickenson of Urban Guitar

Reflective and Serene
Night Wheel is a wonderful CD that soothes the mind, body, and spirit. Michael Barry's arrangements of folk music from around the world are calming, reflective, and serene, while also being musically fulfilling. Some of the pieces, such as A Child is Born and Goodnight, will be familiar to many people, but most of the music has been rarely heard or recorded and certainly deserves recognition. This is a CD that is satisfying on many levels- from musicality to technique to knowing your purchase is making the world a better place.
