Uptown Folk Club's 24th Year!!
Unfortunate musical loss for Edmonton and for all of Canada.
It is with deep regret that the Uptown Folk Club announces the passing of Barry Allen, an outstanding singer/songwriter, recording engineer and producer. He was a music legend and icon. He had a heart of gold and was truly loved by all that met him. Even more importantly, he was a great husband, father, grandfather and friend.
At his Homesteader studio, Barry produced our Uptown Folk Club "compilation" CD in 2008, and we were also proud to present Barry and his "New" Rebels at Winterfest in 2015, and at a concert in 2016. We had hoped to do a CD Release concert for Barry this year, after he and his "new" band produced their most recent recording, "Speed of Dark".
He will be sadly missed but his legend will live on.
Our sincere condolences go out to Barry's family and musical friends all over Edmonton and beyond.
