The Barker Gypsies has been a band for eight years. Featuring piano, harmonica, bass, vocals, and other instruments, the band plays folk, pop, and rock in folk style. On piano is Brian Poucher, a founding member of the band. He also adds bass, guitar, and vocals on many songs.
On lead vocals and harmonica is Catherine Ellis, another founding member of the Gypsies. David Wright plays bass guitar, as well as singing and sitting in on piano. Last but not least is Tom Wright, who adds whatever a song needs in the way of rhythm or lead guitar, percussion, vocals, or harmonica.
The Barker Gypsies have been performing in and around Corvallis since 2012 in various configurations. They have written original songs, and have created an EP called “Easy,” available online.
The Gypsies love to play outdoors, and for any crowd that loves music. In the future, we hope to work together to write more songs and make more recordings. All recording and mixing is done by Brian Poucher in his home.
The Barker Gypsies will be performing at Yachats Underground Pub & Grub from time to time. They are a great group of musicians and a fun show too.
