One Man Americana Folk

Labeling music isn’t a simple task these days. Come to a P. Barton show and you’ll pass through a landscape that includes alternative, folk, americanna, bluegrass and pure spontaneity. And while each performance is different, the energy and spirit always comes through. Building on a foundation of finger-style and flat-picked guitar, Barton mixes vocals, percussion, harmonica, banjo, and slide to create a variety of sounds from his one man show. Creating each sound entirely through live performance makes each song and each show unique.

You can find Barton bringing his act to stages around the Northwest with a variety of songs and musical styles tailored to match the energy of the venue. “I love playing a small room as much as a larger stage and every show is different, trying to create the right feel and sound for the space. It’s an opportunity to do something unique, entertaining and memorable and that’s what I love.” Be sure to catch Barton and sign-up for his newsletter and mailing list to keep up-to-date about upcoming shows.

P. Barton is a musician from Husum, Washington.

Upcoming Events

O Fortuna

Fortuna I hear you cryin’
The blackbird’s following me
My pockets got a hole
A woman got my soul
She ain’t coming back for me
No, she ain’t coming back for me


When I Was Gone

The moon is sneaking out tonight
Won’t you come out too
Find me underneath the stars
I crossed the great divide
On a path that leads to you
Under wild, magnificent skies


Three Legged Fox

I am a three legged fox
but I wasn’t always built this way
I was caught in your trap when darkness fell
and I found another way


Be the change you want to see
Be the light we need to be
Trust your heart and don't hold back
The love you give will pay you back
Give more than what is asked of you
Be the kindness and the truth
And more than this I wish for you
Cause it's a good, good life.

A Good Life
