While world-wide events of the first quarter of 2020 have been historically unprecedented, the old ‘stiff upper lip’ approach is in full swing here in my world.
All performance gigs are cancelled until further notice (to quote one venue’s management) so lemonade will be made of the sour citrus that has been served up.
That is to say, that while sheltering at home is, for the time being the new norm, I may as well get caught up on some long overdue practicing, learning new material and improving upon the old.
Previous postings have included the announcements of two new recordings, one being my second SOLO project Wally Barnick and The Trail Boss Troubadors (aka TBT) which was released in October 2019 (SustainableTunes Records 2019) and then a CD released with band mates Dan Crary and Bill Evans (Crary, Evans & Barnick) PRIME TIME (Native and Fine Records) in January 2020.
One can revisit those earlier posts by simply scrolling down below this page/post.
With the help of my talented graphics department (that would be my lovely wife Nola) there are now two visual representations of songs from TBT for your viewing and enjoyment and one video from my first SOLO record View From Lafler Canyon (2008 Coast Ridge Records).
I have included all three videos here. Thanks for visiting the website, and I wish everyone safety and wellness while looking forward to seeing you soon.

And… here’s a little ‘scoop on the NEWEST CD:
The music/cd’s can be purchased by visiting the Merchantile Page.
Thank you and CHEERS! 🙂
Happy New Year Friends! So glad we made it, as the song goes.
Two terrific things have already occurred, this first being the release of my second SOLO album Wally Barnick and The Trail Boss Troubadors, which was released on October 11, 2019.
Thank You Everyone who has purchased the album/cd, and to all of my friends in RADIO who are playing tracks from the album on your programs. There are too many of you to list at this posting but I will get that posting up and out soon.
The second cool thing is… my band mates Dan Crary and Bill Evans and I (Crary, Evans and Barnick) completed our first album Prime Time and it is scheduled for delivery on January 14, 2020. Three years in the making and we are very pleased with the results and we certainly hope that you will be too!
Visit the MERCHANTILE page here in the site to see how to order your copy.
We’ll be in the Pacific Northwest in late January, over in New Mexico and Colorado in April and off to the Walnut Valley Music Festival in Winfield, Kansas in September. In between all of that we’ll have some Northern and Southern California dates added to the schedule… out promoting the album and playing some great music along the way.
Please make frequent visits to my GIGS page here on the sight to remain informed as to our whereabouts.
I am and we are grateful for your friendship. Thanks for being along on the ride and we hope to see you soon!
On October 11, 2019 the manufacturer delivered 1000 copies of the NEW cd Wally Barnick And The Trail Boss Troubadors.
I am very pleased with the results of the skills and hard work that my wife Nola applied to cause my vision for the packaging to become reality.
And I am just as pleased with the audio content, the 13 tracks, having been co-produced by myself and long-time musical associate and friend David West.
I am grateful to ALL of the songwriters, musicians and singers for their gifts and their generosity.
Seriously… secure a copy of the cd. I’ll even offer a FULL REFUND if you can’t find something joyful or redeeming in this music.
If we were still in the era of “major record labels” (they are mostly non-existent now) the song and accompanying video included below would most likely be released as a “single”.
This is track #3 Through The Eyes Of Children.
Please have a look and listen.
And please, visit the MERCANTILE AND SAMPLES here on the site to place your order.
Cheers and much love. Wally
