Barry’s New CD

Island troubadour Barry Pischner outdid himself on his new CD, a wonderful set of ballads by Barry, his daughter Tammy, and Rich Scripps, with Bob and Martina Bollinger lending a hand.
Turning down offers from Nashville and New York, Barry held a release party on the porch of Dalwhinnie on a blustery afternoon on June 28th, to the delight of his many fans. “He makes every line come alive,” a young woman said as he signed a copy of Sailing On. Her wizened grandfather, who was next in line, had to chime in: “I remember him singing with Jewell Gillespie as a kid. He’s better now, I think. Better’n ever.” A woman standing nearby added: “He really means it. For him, it’s not just words.”
