In the second episode of our three part mini-series recorded in Westward Ho! in North Devon, the “Music Man” John Barton talks with Creative Conversations host Yang-May Ooi about a lifetime of music and song.
John Barton on Sand, Sea and Song CCV0204 (Westward Ho! mini-series) ¦ Creative Conversations [podcast]
The Westward Ho! and North Devon area is not just a place for kitesurfing and beautiful long walks in nature but also a hive of musical activity. There are live bands playing almost every night in a range of pubs and other venues in the local area.
Today, our Creative Conversation is with a man whose life has been defined by song and music – and who is the “go to” guy for anything you’ve ever wanted to know about the music scene in the North Devon area, John “the Music Man” Barton.
