Sunday, August 28, at 1PM, I'll be doing a one hour accordion demonstration at the Country Music Hall of Fame. The accordion is my second instrument. I took it up about ten years ago as a secondary option in my live acoustic performances with my wife, Gretchen Peters. Gretchen will be with me playing at the HOF playing a role she rarely gets to play: the role of accompanist. The information on this demonstration is here:

From the review of Silencio:

"Nashville's Barry Walsh spent decades as a go-to pianist iconic musicians pursued when they wanted the best. How many other piano men can claim Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings, and Alex Chilton on their résumés? But that's only one part of a fascinating story. Walsh is not only a hell of a pianist, but a fine composer as well."
