Barn owls

“The Barn Owls” are a group of good friends from the River Towns who have been playing music together for about a year. Each of us has her or his own distinct musical preferences, resulting in the very eclectic mix of songs in every set. For example, Bill Salton, the lead guitarist, has a special fondness for vintage rock and blues, and will be heard singing and playing riffs for such songs as B.B. King’s “The Thrill is Gone” and Sam Cooke’s “Bring It On Home;” Stacy Hirsh, the rhythm guitarist, has a great feel for country/rock, and enjoys singing such tunes as Linda Ronstadt’s “Willin” and Bonnie Raitt’s “Angel From Montgomery;” Adam Brown, the drummer, contributes edgier numbers such as Ernie Doe’s “A Certain Girl” and The Ramone’s “Don’t Come Close” and Dan Blum, the bassist, has a taste for more contemplative numbers such as George Harrison’s “Beware of Darkness” and Dire Straits’ “Brothers in Arms.” The result is a presentation of a wide variety of material in each set — in other words, something for everybody!
