barrett anderson

A 20 year veteran of the Boston music scene, Barrett cut his teeth by playing with members of Muddy Waters' 1970's band, Pinetop Perkins & Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin, in the late 90's.  Following that, he spent a combined 6 years in the internationallhy-acclaimed blues bands Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters and The Monster Mike Welch Band

Barrett recorded All The Way Down, his first album (produced by Jimbo Mathus) in North Mississippi in 2007. 

He returned to his native New England and quickly enlisted some of the world's heaviest blues musicians - Ron Levy (organist for Albert King, BB King, Roomful of Blues, and more ) and Per Hanson (drummer for Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters). 

In 2013, Barrett's second album, The Long Fall (produced by Cambridge's roots-rock king Dennis Brennan), was released and Barrett won a highly prestigious Boston Music Award2013 Blues Artist of the Year.
