“Thank you so much for taking the time to come down to the El Morro area to share your wonderful music with us! Yours was one to the most entertaining concerts we’ve ever had, and many who attended think it was the best. We feel honored to have you as a guest performer. I hope we can arrange to have you back sometime.” -Paula Tripodi and the El Morro Area Arts Council

“Jerry Barlow is not only highly admired for his musical talent, but his rapport with his audience (both young & old) is overwhelming...We are certain to invite him back every season to the Cañon Rose Acoustic Society for a concert.” -The Cañon Rose Acoustic Society Board

“One of the most enjoyable concerts we've presented in the past five years. Our audience alternated between rapt silence during the guitar pieces and practically rolling-in- the-aisles laughter at Jerry's stories in between. We heartily recommend Jerry.” -Bill Hudson, Whistle Pig Concert Series

“Jerry Barlow’s adaptations of Celtic and mountain music are haunting and peaceful, stirring and thought-provoking. His performance can brighten even the depths of winter. He is a consummate artist whose wit, humor and interaction with the audience made our fund-raiser a huge success.” -Sue Lathop, Library Director, John Tomay Memorial Library

“The wit, as well as the music, was delightful and unique. Thank you all.” -Dorothy Connors, President, Gilpin County Arts Association

“Jerry Barlow is one of Colorado's A-list musicians.” The Swallow Hill Quarterly

“The Jerry Barlow concert fundraiser in November was a huge success… His entertaining and humorous interaction with the crowd were a big hit and would have stolen the show if it wasn’t already his!” -The Tomay Tattler, Georgetown, Colorado

“We so enjoyed Jerry. We had people attend that have never come to the library before. I will definitely put Jerry on a list of programs to have again.” Linda Rea, Library Director, Hastings Public Library “Thank you for blessing us with a concert by Jerry. We had a wonderful afternoon--everybody loved him (of course!). Let us know when Jerry wants to come this way again--the red carpet is out!” -Veronika Barnes, Deming Arts Council
