6pm to 6:30pm--- Merrily Weeber and John Barnard

6:30pm to 7pm--- Barry Cullison www.bluepower.com
Barry Cullison’s dad played a ’46 flat top Gibson and knew every Hank Williams song there was. His mom sang harmony and played the harmonica and dulcimer. With his two musical sisters it was tough to find a harmony part while the family sang on car trips to pass the time. He was raised country but seduced by rock and roll. Barry has paid dues both as an actor and guitar player in Chicago, New York and now LA. TV shows like “X Files”, “Magnificent Seven” and “Cold Case” are fun and paid the bills. But he has a passion to play guitar and he keeps cranking out his own tunes. He is trying to reinvent the wheel with his songs so it’s a bit difficult to put a bead on what his style is. It can be furious and complex, political or funny. He can tear it up or bring it down. Barry would rather work on a song than watch TV, read a book or go to bed. In spite of this, he and his wife Laura have a beautiful 9-year old son, Darby, and Dar likes the guitar too.
7:00pm to 7:30pm--- Savannah Lynne
