"When I started coming to the Black Walnut Folk Club, Ed was a guy that took the stage, took total possession of the room, and laid out these great tunes every time."” - Wayne Cheater, Host Black Walnut Folk Club

Black Walnut Folk Club

"Edward John Barrington's music is that Folk based theme that I remembered being introduced to listening to Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, Jesse Winchester, John Prine, Dan Fogelberg,The Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul & Mary and The Mamas and Papas in my youth. I liked that music and went on to research its roots discovering Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie among others. However, there was a huge difference in the music I was hearing from Edward; thus, I discovered a whole new approach that was missing in older songs and from older Artists. That difference, and a fresh difference at that, were lyrics reflecting Edward's actual surroundings and stories he experienced that could be told with references to those areas. What does that mean for the average listener who might not know The Old Elora Gorge, or where or what Penetanguishene was? That is just it, for it doesn't matter except that the songs and Edward's singing style made those songs beautiful, funny, poignant and touched a personal nerve while bringing his world to others."” - James Rogers, Founder & Host Planet Radio Canada
