Del Barber is a singer-songwriter from Manitoba, whose winsome balladry and wry wit harken back to country-folk traditions that remind the listener of the late greats of songwriting history. Del is no stranger to finding inspiration in the cultural backdrop of Canada. On the JUNO Award-nominated Prairieography, Barber documented stories of prairie life, highlighting the unique relationship between struggle, hard work and love.
