“Edward Barrington's music is that Folk based theme that I remembered being introduced to listening to Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, Jesse Winchester, Dan Fogelberg, John Prine, The Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul & Mary and The Mamas and Papas in my youth.” - James Rogers
Edward John Barrington is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and educator living in Waterloo Region, Ontario, Canada. His extensive song library is reflective of past experiences and present emotions.

He has facilitated song writing workshops, and has been an educator since 1983. Edward released his first full CD, Watershed, in 1998, Old Songs, New Sentiments, in 2013, and his Fall 2020 release: a 4-track EP, entitled Acoustical Movement.
