Barry's Crossing is a "traditional-with-a-twist" Irish band from Rochester, NY. Much of their repertoire consists of traditional Celtic tunes and songs that they arrange for the many instruments they play. (They play about eight instruments between the two of them for live shows.) They also toss in covers of various artists, including Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Billy Joel. The result is an intriguing set that will have you hooked all night long!
Barry's Crossing has taken the stage all over New York State, including Kitty Hoynes and Coleman's Irish Pub in Syracuse, the Buffalo Irish Center, the Shannon Pub (Buffalo) and several other Irish pubs in and around the Greater Rochester area. They have played in several festivals including the Rochester Irish Festival, the Webster Folk Festival, and the Ontario Barn Festival. They have also had the privilege of performing with internationally known musicians such as Enter the Haggis (Toronto), Sirsy (Albany), the Dave North Trio (Rochester) and collaborate regularly with Irish musicians throughout Central New York.
