Following the release of his fifth album '40 Miler', ex-Avail singer Tim Barry is set to brings his earnest, poignant, and riotous songs back to the UK for an extensive June tour.
Richmond, Virginia-based singer-songwriter Tim Barry last joined our very own Frank Turner on tour last Autumn in the UK and Europe, sharing his blues, folk, and country-tinged sound with an appreciative audience. This time, dates will be more intimate for what will be an incredible evening of powerful storytelling and heartfelt sing-a-longs.

Tim Barry has long left behind his harder edged music, but not the soul or passion which fueled it. One of his songs, 'Prosser's Gabriel', led to a freedom fighting slave's final resting place from the 1800s being turned from a car park into a park memorial to honour his name. If that's not powerful songwriting, then music means nothing to anyone.
He's also released a video which has been inspired by a loved one who passed away in 2008. 'Shed Song' from his last album, and its video, will prepare you for what to expect when he arrives in the UK.
