Mick Barry's Photo Album

For about 20 years I was involved in the Irish Music business first as a sound engineer and later as a tour manager, booking agent and artist manager. Along the way I used to love to bring whatever camera I had to hand and take some photos. Here are a collection of my favourites. Eventually I will get them into some kind of order.
