A Barry Wickens Solo Album for the Autumn of 2018 has gone into manufacture at the start of October.The release date has yet to be announced.

The violin and viola are members of the alternative rock medium I work in and where acoustic instruments meet electronica, nature meets technological, my worlds collide and marry. With musical contributions from Stuart Elliott (drums), James Lascelles (harmonium), Brian Betts (electric guitar), all vocals and other instruments played by me.This is my first solo album! Coming Soon! If you would like to pre-order your copy of CD, please register your interest and contact via this website and you will be contacted once the product is ready for release.

My first album recording (me the guy crossed legged on the floor, aged 18yrs. old ) with Steamboat Bluegrass Band from 1974. It appears people are trying to sell this vinyl LP on the internet - good luck!

I'm so lucky music and friendship brings me back to playing with these guys at a poignant event, Jo Cox's memoir, a street party in her home neighbourhood by the River Thames.

"The Great Get Together" are street parties country wide initiated by Brendan Cox, her husband, one year on after her murder. Long may these events continue in Jo's memory!

“As she said in her maiden speech in parliament – we have far more in common than that which divides us.

“Jo wanted a chance to bring our communities together to celebrate what unites us.”

Hermitage Riverside Memorial Garden, which is right by the Thames, off Wapping High Street, not far from St Katherine Docks, from 2pm.

Two spectacular events this 2017 include Glastonbury Festival, Saturday 24 June

.....and  17 November Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel along with Madness in Minehead  Butlins music weekend

Creative Arts, including music as an industry, brings in around £8.5 billion GDP.  I experience the value of music on a daily basis and see how it impacts on  young people in education,  creatively and developmentally in individual's life and social skills, health and well-being.  We cannot guess  jobs of the future but many will require the skills of invention and creativity.  I'm lucky to still be exploring music, I don't stop learning but for our children please join in this campaign headed by the Incorporated Society of Musicians to keep a broad based curriculum in our schools.

  • The Government supports our creative industries, but we need their support for our creative subjects; please #BaccDown: http://bit.ly/1B7lRLW
