BandFolkChildren's Music

St. John's, Newfoundland native, Rik Barron is an accomplished family entertainer. The veteran musician is known for his crisp instrumental style, smooth baritone voice and high energy live family shows. Oh yeah. He's funny too.


Along with his reputation as a vocalist and multi-instrumental roots artist, Rik Barron has dedicated much of his life to performing for family audiences; parents, teachers and children. The natural born children's entertainer has performed roots music for young children in schools, fairs and concert halls for the last 30 years. His live concerts for the young and young-at-heart are high energy, engaging performances where the audience listens, sings, dances and laughs. Often at the same time.
Using just his guitar, banjo and vocals he easily breaks through the traditional gimmicks often associated with family shows and gets right down to the heart of the matter with top notch playing, warm humour and classic music.

Rik is a three time East Coast Music Award winner and three time Canadian Music Folk Award nominee and a two time Indie Award nominee. We hope you take some time to listen to his music. A selection of music from the last two recordings Shine and Over in the Meadow are available for listening here.
