Rik Barron is an award winning children’s entertainer. The Newfoundland based singer has been performing for young audiences for nearly 25 years. His style is unique in the children’s market borrowing heavily from his day job as a folk singer and instrumentalist. On Shine, Rik uses his traditional laid back approach to deliver a recording that is itself also traditional and laid back. A year in the making, Shine is a labor of love. It features the subtle sounds of 5 string banjos, mandolins, and acoustic guitars at their most relaxed while never straying from their roots origins.

Rik's liner notes on the back cover of the CD state the intent and focus of the CD

“When our children were young Sarah and I searched for all sorts of music. One of the things we looked for were recordings that would allow us to relax. What I’ve tried to do here is create a recording that grandparents, aunt’s, uncles, mothers, fathers, friends, babysitters and children’s can all listen to at the same time. I want to thank Duncan Wells for writing the beautiful song Shine. Its’ relaxed feel, beautiful melody and lyrics set the pace for the entire recording. There is a time place and music for letting loose. There are other recordings out there for that. There is also a time to hum, sing, play along or listen. “

So… Have a listen.
