A Bit of History...

Barbara   feels privileged to be invited back to most of the venues where she plays. Getting to know the venue and the audience community is life-giving, great fun, and satisfying for everyone! 

Barbara started playing guitar and singing early on:

'very hip' 1970's teachers laid the best ground work for learning music, expressing vocal passion and developing rhythm guitar skills. Barbara sang in many choirs,  competed vocally at Osseo High School, studied music at Hamline University, took private vocal and guitar classical lessons, and produced some youth musicals.  

She is roadied by her sound guy, guitar loving, equipment wiz, husband, Dennis: It's a great love of music and a great journey they share! Easy Listening: 50's, 60's, 70's to today's covers, spiritual, and original tunes.

We've met so many amazing people sharing 

music, stories and time: ...Even wrote a song about that!

Holiday Gatherings, House Concerts, Retreats, Eateries, Special Events

From informal to fine events... 

Barbara will customize the music needs for your special venue or occasion.

RSVP's for Dogs? Your event? Your house? ...Your call!

Barbara just finished a Live Demo CD 

in the studio that her husband produced.

This is available by request for booking inquiries!

Barbara plays for outdoor gatherings for home celebrations, community/city events, anniversaries, birthdays, BBQ's, retirement, public venues like golf courses and restaurant patio music! If you could bring her inside for the winter farmer's market, that's a good plan in Minnesota! 

Heartland Conference Ctr, WI

Barbara is brave enough to play at 

farmer's markets where tomatoes abound: FEARLESS!  

From tomatoes to grapes to hops? Wineries?Breweries?

Conference Centers, Retreats, and fundraisers often need quality music to draw a crowd. Barbara has played at the Heartland Conference Center in WI,  private parties at golf courses,  National Night Out in Hastings (six years), four Empty Bowls Events, and too many eateries and Retreat Centers, to mention over the years, but every one of them memorable!

Any deck is great for outdoor concerts!

        Some friends from the Mpls Commodores stopped by

        to share some tunes and jam some oldies with Barbara 

        at the Maple Grove Farmer's Market!

Sound and video experts weaving their studio magic for fellow singer songwriters who are donating time & tunes for Community Television Programming in many states and cities across the country. Barbara's songs can also be heard on Home Brew 90.1 out of Thief River Falls.
