In 1977, Barrence made his way to Boston to attend Boston University and later transferred to Emerson College, where he remained happily for the next few years as journalism major. During that time, Barrence focused on school versus performing but kept music close to his heart. His hunger and passion for all things musical led him to build a personal record collection to enviable levels. He has become a well respected musicologist who now lectures on music and its societal impact. He will be performing with Session Americana on the main stage on Saturday at 8 p.m. and as part of the Saturday night After Dark event.
