Ten Pound Fiddle with Barbara Bailey Hutchison
The Ten Pound Fiddle opens its 41st season of concerts with Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Barbara Bailey Hutchison. The artist has performed her melodic, lyrically-driven songs in almost every state and around the world globe, and she has appeared at the White House three times. Hutchison grew up in Detroit, but she didn’t begin performing until she attended Michigan State University. Before long she was touring and performing at other college campuses and even landed some commercial work, singing on hundreds of advertisements for McDonald's, Hallmark Cards, Heinz and other national accounts. Since then, she’s released a string of acclaimed albums. In 1996 she nabbed a Grammy Award for “Best Musical Recording for Children.” — Rich Tupica
