Description

Del Barber, The Waitress, Moon Mountain Sessions www.delbarber.com Del Barber is the real deal, a country folk singer with enough stories to make Woody or Arlo Guthrie jealous, and boy can he tell them, a charismatic performer and one heck of a picker. I had heard tales of this wandering Manitoban troubadour and happened to cross paths all the way down in Australia. After being wowed by his show i suggested going for a drive to a tunnel under a highway with great reverb, now most singers love a little reverb but as for Del, well he made a reverb chamber out of a grain silo for his album...thats commitment. what transpired under that highway as the trucks rolled overhead was a beautiful rendition of Del's song "the waitress" a true story of a woman working an all night diner who leant an ear and shared her story. enjoy.
