Big Barton is a band from Memphis, TN that plays classic country and western music from the 1930s-60s. Songs from artists such as Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Ernest Tubb, and Johnny Cash will bring you back in time to the golden era of Nashville's WSM radio.
Fronted by Jeremy Shrader (New Memphis Hepcats, Mighty Souls Brass Band), who sings lead vocals and rhythm guitar, and Adam Holton (Mister Adams, Cotton and Coal), on vocal harmonies, lead vocals and bass, the band features some of the best musicians from the Memphis area, including Richard Alan Ford (pedal steel guitar), Logan Hanna (lead guitar), and Jesse Williams (drums).
Complete with some of the biggest hats and belt buckles you've ever seen, the band holds true to the roots of this American art form, while bringing their modern sensibilities and musical talents to these songs. While the full band presents the best sound for this music, Big Barton can also break down to “Small Barton” ensembles of 2- 5 pieces. The band is perfect for barn dances, corporate events, and weddings with a country flair, they'll turn any event into a two-steppin' affair!
