Bruce Barthol has cancelled his UK tour due to a family crisis, so his former bandmate is stepping in!
Barry “The Fish” Melton and Stephane Missri (Formerly of Country Joe and the Fish)
Home-made snacks available. Please book as for films: from the website or call 07725 051523.
Barry “The Fish” Melton is the co-founder of the psychedelic rock band Country Joe and The Fish, one of the most influential groups in the San Francisco music scene during the mid to late 1960s. . Barry was the lead guitarist throughout their career, and wrote many of their songs. . .

Barry befriended future band mate Bruce Barthol in his high school’s folk music club in 1964 and soon after met up with Joe McDonald in Berkeley, California, with whom he performed as a duo, Country Joe and The Fish. By 1966 the duo had evolved into a full band, with Bruce Barthol soon in the fold as bass player.

Through a combination of psychedelia and electronic music, the band’s sound was marked by innovative guitar melodies and distorted organ-driven instrumentals which were significant to the development of acid rock. bands.
Barry’s lead guitar playing is utterly distinctive – stinging triplet runs up and down the scale, jarring sustained notes, and runaway frenzied solos – pure unplanned inspiration.

Country Joe & The Fish appeared at the two greatest U.S festivals of the sixties, “Monterey Pop” (1967) and “Woodstock” (1969), and feature in the films and albums. August 17th 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the band’s appearance at the Woodstock Festival.

Country Joe & The Fish broke up in 1970, but although relatively short-lived, they proved to have a major influence on a whole generation of singer-songwriters and bands, notably due to their insistence on mixing music with politics, satire, and irreverence in an unprecedented way.

Since 1970 Barry has performed in Italy, England, Ireland, France, Thailand and Russia – and of course all over the U.S.A. He often appears with his own Barry Melton Band, and tours Europe in the summer with the noted French musician Stephane Missri, both as a duo and with their band Jamasutra. Stephane will be accompanying Barry on his U.K tour.

This is a great opportunity to see a living legend!
