Michael Barber studied guitar with Richard Matteson at Pearson Music in Winston Salem, NC. Michael is a brilliant and crative person that I admire very much. He's a man of action does what he believes in and doesn't compromise his values to please the status quo.
Above is Michael playing mandolin (middle) with the Messengers at Tamarac Marina. Michael also played a concert (Mandolin and guitar) with the Messengers in McClellanville, SC. He sang Paradise on the Messengers Father Along CD and at the Doc Watson concert in Greensboro. Michael was always a good friend and helpful- he designed the Messengers web-site.
Michael is now an auctioneer and real estate agent in Wilmington, NC.
