A man and his harmonica

    Hi, I’m Ellwood “Chip” Barrett, and I’m a harp player based high in the Rocky Mountains of central Colorado.

    Most of my live gigs are in Park County (Alma and Fairplay) and Summit County (Breckenridge), with occasional forays to the Front Range (Denver and Colorado Springs).

    I’m also the stage manager for Alma, Colorado’s Festival in the Clouds (also known as Alma Fest), which will celebrate its 14th year this July 16th and 17th, 2011.

    I have a couple of albums out: The Best of Ellwood So Far, and Alma Stew. Contact me if you’d like to get a copy. Here’s a testimonial from one of my fans (this page is the best place to leave a comment for Ellwood).  If you’d like to hear some of Ellwood’s music, check out his page on AudioMountain.

    Also, check out my blog! It’s updated a couple of times a day. You’ll find great lessons from classic harmonica masters. There’s also rare footage and videos that you’ll probably never see anywhere else, all related to great harp playing.

    And ALSO, check out the Ellwood Barrett channel on Youtube!
