Welcome to the official site for Barber & Taylor music, as well as the place to find all things related to K C Barber music.
Kevin Barber & Mark Taylor perform an eclectic range of roots music, energised by driving bluegrass rhythms, tinged with elements of folk, blues and celtic music and sung in harmony. Using a range of instruments, including acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo and dobro, they are also, on occasions, joined by virtuoso fiddle player Amy-Brightling Reed, when they become Barber, Taylor & Reed.
Kevin is also a solo performer who records and performs as K C Barber.

"Brighton-based duo Kevin Barber and Mark Taylor are one of those totally-together acts that sound for all the world like they've been playing and singing together almost from birth. Typically they play an attractively melancholy brand of acoustic-based, guitarsome bluegrassy Americana."
